Wrist Injury

Recommended Posts

Hey!

 

I want to start saying that I've been a gamer for a long time now and this has never actually happened to me before. I was peacefully playing and listening to music when my hand started aching. I was confused by the inexplicable pain, but did not pay attention to it... until now. It started turning purple/black and then the pain was much more intense. It resulted to be what my doctor called 'an injury caused by videogames addiction'. I am not taking a break though (can't stay that long without playing).

 

Have a great day!

That is why I use a trackball mouse, not one of those mice where you move the whole thing around, much easier on the hand and wrist

Actually, I am buying a new mouse soon and I will consider that option, because my mouse is really uncomfortable. Thanks for sharing!

I often have a "minor ache" at the top of my right/mouse hand, so I'm not as severe as you.  I changed from a regular mouse to an mmo gaming mouse and the most of the ache went away.  Keep trying different things until you find something that works for you.  Repetitive stress injuries are no fun.

That's pretty weird actually and I actually never knew that could happen. I've also got myself a Razor Mouse which is absolutely great and I would recommend it to everyone! Especially, if you do play MMO's.
