@colorofmyheart:  It didn’t hurt during, just after. I am okay with not ever doing it again, lol.

@colorofmyheart:  Really? The therapist said to expect pain the next day…just not as bad as it was. Same as with physio, if it doesn’t hurt the next day or feel tender then I don’t feel it did anything. That was just terrible though. I don’t get the flouncy massages with candles at a spa…I mean sports massages where they get right in there. That might be the difference, lol.

I think you are cutting off circulation.

I think you need a new mouse and maybe a new mousing posture. You don’t want to be pressing down on your wrist.

I have a trackball mouse and the way I use it, my wrist is always elevated.

+1 to everyone that said to develop a habit of popping up and getting some activity in at regular intervals.

(i am a medical student)

If there is no numbness or tingling sensations in a part of your palm and the first 3 digits then it is not CT..

What you are describing is something vascular (and blood vessles don’t pass through the carpal tunnel). You should see a doctor as soon as possible because it might be something serious in the making.. It might just be your wrist positioning from work but it might also be something that has to do with your previous trauma. So you’d better get it checked because if it was something serious you wouldn’t want it to progress more than that and eventually lead to cutting of blood supply to your hand and thus necrosis (your hand muscles, cells,… die due to lack of oxygenation and nutrients).

Till you see a doctor keep your hand fixed in one position.. Don’t flex your wrist.. And try (as much as possible) not to ‘over use’ it (try using the other hand at work).
