Mouse arm

Wednesday, March 5th, 2008

Just a short update on my RSI (?!) problems…short since I’m not able to write that much.

I went to see the doctor this morning, who confirmed that the pain is caused by irritation in the tendon soft tissue, located solely in my wrist and underarm (not coming from my neck/shoulder); it is a so-called mouse arm.

She was able to hit the right (=painful) spots at once (and even seemed to enjoy it? ;)), pretty painful to be honest.

Avoiding using the mouse with my righthand and overall giving the arm rest, along with some medication and gel to massage should get me over it. I’ll go for that!
