I dunno. I think I'm at really high risk. I've been playing piano for 9+ years and typing since I was 5... x_X... I move my wrist, and it cracks automatically. If I swing my arms, I can almost feel my wrists detaching. Sometimes I feel sharp pains in my wrists or a weird nerve thing... o_0... wah... ;_;

Hrm. 10+ hours a day on a compie doing relentless typing...

I think that means I'll be in some real pain.

Actually, I already am... One of these days I'll break out my old wrist brace. sad.gif

Well I'm usually online on the computer from around 7pm to whenever before 4am, but of course that varies at the moment.

During the day I try not to go on the computer unless I have like nothing to do so then I would just listen to music or write more to my story (which I should get back to doing gah!)

Yes my right wrist especially has been sore once in a blue moon but i think it might be cuz how much i am on the computer on a giving time, I dunno tongue.gif

I'm pretty sure I've already got it. The other day I gave my guy-friend, Brent (not my boyfriend, but not for lack of trying dry.gif ), a BACK massage (not something else, I save that for Cheese's penguin and really big bananas wink.gif ). My wrist hurt sooooo bad that night that I had to take one of my migraine pain pills. Next time it happens I'm going to go to the doctor so that I can be diagnosed and treated.

I type constantly, what with being on here, and on other boards, and editing fiction, and writing articles, and chat...and I've been doing this for years. It's a wonder I don't already have carpal tunnel. What does it do, by the way? All I know is it affects your hands, and in Hannibal Dr Lecter pretended to have had it to explain away the scar where he'd removed his superfluous sixth finger on his left hand.
