Surprisingly not - surprising because I'm a computer science student, I work for an ISP and I use the PC a lot in my 'free time' (poker, etc). So I use a mouse constantly for my work, my study and my play.

I do have a nice mouse though..

bummer for you!

lol, kinda the same with me as for using the mouse. It's probably in my hand 60% of my waking hours since I write Process Diagrams, Control Plans and Potential-Failure-Mode and Affects Analysis for my work. On the other, my hand gets really sore when I play video games due to the controller requiring so much repetitive motions.

It can cause carpal tunnel syndrome!

I would suggest you go to a store and try out a few. Five years ago at work my mouse died, and our IT guy bought me a Microsoft ergonomic mouse. I tried it and instantly loved it, and now I think I know why: having done quite a lot of manual work (mechanics, woodworking, etc) my hands and fingers are fairly thick and wide, and this mouse is big so it fits it well. Someone with small hands would probably hate my mouse. So maybe it is like a glove and you have to try on a few to see what fits. Smile

Gosh, i pass eight hours per day in front of a computer, in my daily regular job, and sometmies i feel some problems with my fingers (i think its tendinite), but nothing that worries me too much. At home, i have a good mouse in the pc, and, when playing for several hours in a row, i never have problems, and always end up the session with my fingers just as if i havent been at the computer. Dont want to advertise nothing here, but BMW Designworks just made a mouse, its called Level 10, must be expensive, but you can look for more info on the net to see if it solves your problem.

Hi Supernoob

I can say as someone who is in a wheelchair and suffering with various ailments that excessive use of a mouse can cause repetitive strain injury.

I have Raynard's and carpal tunnels syndrome and the mouse use does not help. My GP told me to reduce the time I use a mouse. Luckily for me I still am not very good at this game and therefore do not go very far in the tourneys I play. At the end of the day it is good to have something to blame it on !!!

GL to you all

Anyway when we win the main event - the pain will go away I am sure !!!!! Worship Worship Worship Worship

I know what you mean, I've been in the computer biz for over 20 years - never had any probs untill I started multi-tabling 4-5-6 tables playing poker 12 hours a day for a few years. Just last week I cut down to 1 or 2 tables only while using my left hand. (My pains started on my right muse click finger..then back of the hand...then every muscle in my right arm....then my shoulder). Docs want to give me cortizone....no thanks! I'll try the left side for another week first and give the right side a break.

Cheers! Cool

used to wrestle 4 nites a week (olympic freestyle) and ran 10-15 miles a day (7 days a week) when alot younger. My coaches taught me how to block out pain to get thru a sticking point. Found out the hard way not to do it with an actual injury...makes the injury much worse. I had injured my right shoulder and kept blocking out the pain to continue training and competing. After a short time I couldn't lift my right arm and I was forced to stop everything. Took 3 months to heal and was told I was very lucky. Since then I've learned to respect pain, get the proper therapy and take the needed time to heal before I continue. Healing actually hurt more than the initial injury.
