I built up a RSI (repetitive strain injury) in my index and middle fingers due to excessive mousing last year. I tried many methods to cure it but it just didn't go away.
At first, I thought it was the mouse too cheap, so I replaced a better mouse, after a fews month, I've switched to different mouse back and forth, finally I did a little research on the internet and found that I developed an injury for my fingers.
Then I visited a practitioner, he said it is very common problem he've seen and the ultimate advice of his would be to quit programming. He gave mem some vitamin pills, anti-inflammatory pill drugs and gel. I ate the pills and used the gel, it didn't help much.
Then I switched from mouse to touchpad in my office to avoid mousing, it get better.
But back in my home I am still using mouse for my desktop computer usage, I already quited gaming. Maybe I should look for alternatives for mouse. I don't know if a trackball is suitable.
I soak my fingers in ice water, it help a little too.
Overall my RSI problem haven't been cured by now. Do you have any experience in such type of injury due to excessive mousing?
