  3. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Help!!
1 year ago#1
Anyone ever get carpal tunnel syndrome gaming with a controller? I might have developed carpal tunnel syndrome because I have this weird pinching/tingling feeling in my forearm and hands and when an acupuncturist did a test to my wrist in which he pressed down on the wrist I had really bad pain. I was playing Warframe last night and actually had to turn off the vibration because it started to hurt or cause extreme tingling. Does anyone know if there are any type of accessories you could use gaming to avoid this in the future with a controller? I'm planning to not use anymore vibration features for my X1. I'm also going to see my doctor and asked to be sent to a neurologist.

Maybe a brace for you hand? Something along the lines of theses: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Carpal%20Tunnel . But rest is probably the best thing when it acts up. Your doctor will know more and the proper brace for you.

How long are your gaming sessions typically?

That pain you feel may be your body's way of saying, "Put the controller down for a couple of hours and go do something else, chief."

Listen to your body.

Or else end up like me, with a likely case of arthritis in the hands at age 39.

Sometimes I honestly think that Online is the WORST thing that ever happened to gaming.

Certainly not, it will only make things worse.

And TC, just stop playing games for the time being.

Why, so he can make it worse? Because nobody has ever gotten carpal tunnel from using a keyboard or anything...

I have it every now and again. Dont know if it is carpal tunnel syndrome.
But my right hand will basically start to "fall asleep". Starts tingling then hurts, then becomes unable to function properly.

I then have to stop gaming, hold my hand down and shake it until blood flow comes back.
Rinse repeat every 10 minutes or so.
Its usually worse if I have done work with shaky/heavy tools in the day.

Certain people are pre-disposed to get carpal tunnel syndrome. There's almost nothing you can do to prevent it, and if you're pre-disposed to it, you were bound to get it at some point.

On the plus side, a carpal tunnel release and/or an ulnar nerve release are low-risk surgeries that heal quickly.

You might have a pinched nerve somewhere. I get the exact same thing happen and I know I have a pinched nerve in my shoulder.
