Battle Of The Transformers Mice To Prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Lol! What a title, right? XD

I’ve had my iMac for 7 months now and with it came the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Apple Magic Mouse. They look all sleek and stylish on my desktop and while the Magic Mouse is good for browsing and normal use, it becomes quite heavy from prolonged use and resistant to quick movements needed for Photoshop.

I feel pain in my fingers, palm, wrist, elbow, forearm muscles, and shoulder. The places that hurt the most are the arm muscles, and wrist. Due to repeated pressure on the body parts from long hours of mouse use, I often go to bed having to massage away the pain. I’ll wake up the next day, with less pain, but put the parts through torture again for the rest of the day.

These symptoms can relate to inflammation of tendons or irritation of nerves and may be the start of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The name already sounds evil.
