I am willing to bet he posts on an iPad and iPhone with some keyboards. I wonder what what would happen if he used a keyboard 95 percent of the time. Would there be an improvement.

i find my carpal tunnel and other nerves issues flares when I do too much forum on pad or phone and then work. It takes some build up but the pain lingers. I willing bet others have the same.

Thoughts?

Ted, not sure about Paul's issue with his wrist, but in my case (neurosurgery on elbow last year ) I know that a significant issue with carpal tunnel, and my inability to grip something with my right hand, were caused in large part by my extended (19 years +) typing for 10 hours a day with just my right index finger -- at times I did employ both index fingers for speed. Paul's 'mileage' may vary. . .

there is strong hereditary component, my dad suffered greatly from hand pain late in life, to the point where late at night i would see him in tears, and he was a pretty stoic and tough guy

most of the stress on my hands came from using these every day for twenty plus years, playing golf daily probably didn't help

i should like to note the two carpal tunnel release surgeries that i had done a few years ago have been 100 percent effective

this latest bit i had attended to earlier today is an entirely different and more painful animal, de quervain's tenosynovitis ain't no joke. . .

Paul, I googled that condition - my issue could not even come close to what you have going on - I hope you have a successful resolution !!!!

Damn that gotta hurt. hopefully things will look up. repetitive motion injuries are brutal. My rotator cuffs and shoulders hurt from run and gun video production events and I cant take the time off for repairs. I do stretching that helps but need to look to get a proper fix.

I was wondering what platform you use now for this forum. I imagine there may be some relief there.

I suspect it has everything to do with the stand-up paddle board thing ;)

I'm glad to hear that - I'm having my fretting hand done on Monday.

I started to develop it decades ago from mouse-clicking all day, couldn't lift a water glass, took a month to heal. I started using my other hand and mastered it in days. To this day I periodically switch my mousing hand and haven't had a recurrence, though I also don't mouse as many hours a day. I also use a wrist pad to elevate my wrist in front of the keyboard.

Have we completely ruled out repetitive motion issues from visiting “other” sorts of websites? Or is Pless too old for that sort of thing?

The key is to regularly change and adjust your grip.

Having your hand go numb in the middle of a set supporting dancers is no fun, either. :(
