Blogging and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
I think I have CTS. At least I feel I have one.
What’s CTS? Carpal tunnel syndrome is a medical condition in which the median nerve is compressed at the wrist causing symptoms like tingling, pain, coldness, and sometimes weakness in parts of the hand. It is the best known of a class of disorders called repetitive strain injuries.
I don’t type correctly, mostly using only 2 or 3 fingers on each hand. That could be one thing.
I’m also using a Logitech Marble Mouse. That’s the time when I feel some pain and numbing in my palm and fingers. When that happens, I switch back to my Logitech MX500 but it goes bonkers after prolonged use. The USB port may be too old or something. It has served me well in the last 2.5 years so I guess it’s time to get that new laser mouse, Logitech MX1000.
