Wrist update

by Suw on October 8, 2008

First night with splints, and first Alexander Technique session. (I recorded this last night, but Viddler didn’t encode it in time for me to post it here.)

Love the hair. So sorry to hear about your wrist. I hope it doesn’t affect your drinking arm!

thanks!! it does take a ton of hair product to keep it under control though!!

arm is fine, drinking action unaffected, it’s sleeping that’s mainly problematic as the pins and needles are bad enough to wake me some nights. here’s hoping they behave tonight!

Hi Suw, good luck with the splints. I developed RSI in my right arm about 10 yrs ago now, brought on by too much mousing, and although it sounds different to your problem (I don’t have any pain at night, and it’s never been diagnosed as CTS) I’ve worn a wrist splint ever since, because to type or mouse without wearing it becomes excruciating after just a few minutes. There are also some good stretches to do (when I remember to do them). I suppose what I’m saying is it hasn’t got any better but it’s manageable. Like you, I can’t conceive of a life without the keyboard, it’s how I earn my living. So I know how worrying it can be. Best of luck with it.
