The Urge to Click!

My right wrist hurts and I think it's from the 900 EC dropping I've been doing daily. Plus, I'm currently hooked on Farm Frenzy 3 American Pie and if you know that game, you'd understand the need to click in order to win! Smiley

So now my wrist feels sore and I did a little
online pain management research to find out how serious my symptoms are. Perhaps you would find them useful too, especially if you're a hardcore EC dropper or gamer like me. So if you have the following symptoms, please consult a doctor immediately.

o Inability to carry objects or use the arm
o Wrist pain that occurs at night or while resting

o Pain persists more than a few days

o Inability to straighten or flex the joint

o Swelling or significant bruising around the forearm

Fortunately, I don't have any of the above symptoms but my right wrist does feel a little sore and I strongly suspect it's due to my dropping and gaming activities. What I can do at home to help alleviate the pain is simply resting my wrist and avoid overusing it. I can also use hot or cold packs as an effective wrist pain therapy but I'm a little unsure which one to use - the heat or the ice? Smiley

Whatever it is, I'm just relieved that my wrist pain is not due to some major health concerns, which requires medical attention and therapy. If you however, are in need of pain therapy, why not give Egoscue a call? With three simple steps, you can obtain a no-cost initial evaluation with a professional Egoscue therapist immediately.

Once your condition has been assessed, you may choose the therapy options that fit your needs. A low cost online web menu program is also available, which allows you to receive therapy using just your computer and digital camera. How convenient!

As for me, I'm going to heal my pain simply by resisting the urge to click my mouse. I seem to be clicking my mouse all day. Whether it's
EC dropping, typing or playing my fast-click time management games, I have to resist the urge to click ... for today at least! I'll write more once my wrist feels better.

gold bullion,  March 17, 2010 9:57 AM

Well i guess about your wrist, you use the hot one. It is called a hot compress. I know you will feel better after it. :)

David Funk,  March 17, 2010 10:18 AM

Hi Mariuca! :* :* :*

Ironically as I read this, my dad told me today that he fell at work and may have broken in left wrist. He has a cast now, and has to go back in two days to see the extent of the damage.

I can imagine with the combination of your job as well as blogging that your wrists hurt quite frequently.

Anyway, happy Wednesday to you my friend! ;) :)

Ane,  March 17, 2010 11:31 AM

I have Farm Frenzy on my ipod and it's so very addicting!! :-D

Ane,  March 17, 2010 11:32 AM

I get that pain a lot too Marzie, because of my gaming activities, have you tried playing The Sims for hours, or Red Alert, OMG, your wrist will surely sore afterwards.. LOL.. :-D

Ane,  March 17, 2010 11:33 AM

I use hot compress when the pain is just minor and I use a cold pack if I can see a bit of redness.. :) Hope that helps.. :)

Ane,  March 17, 2010 11:35 AM

I agree with Nessa Marzie, your mouse needs a vacation too.. :-D hehehe

Ane,  March 17, 2010 11:35 AM

'Inability to straighten or flex the joint'

That's exactly what I'm feeling right now! I think it's time to go check my arm out!

Lil,  March 17, 2010 5:48 PM

Ya lah, click! click! click! I am fighting for time to do this. Now dok sibut nak let go lots of my stuff for sales, so that bila I pindah it would be hard on me. I dah set my mind with a job or without a job I am ready to balik KL and dah bosan dgn cari rumah, my friend is goind to help me find a nice apartment with security lagi but rental memang around $M1,200.00. Perhaps I have to grap it and when I am there, I will go all out to find a job or do something! :) ;) 8-) :* :* :* :* :* :*

Lil,  March 17, 2010 5:48 PM
