The amount of time I've spent gaming, due to current events, has increased over the past two years. I had to deal with tendinitis in my fingers last year because of it, but now I face something worse.
My left hand (the one that moves the PCI around when I'm batting, for example) has been experiencing these numbness spells, where the numbness shoots up and down my hand, from my wrist area to my fingers, usually the middle and index fingers. It may have happened to me while gaming, but I also specifically remember it happening to me when I was holding the steering wheel at 12:00 with my left hand and holding my phone up and swiping the screen with my left thumb.
I am a woman in her 20s. Not the usual age demographic for carpal tunnel syndrome. So even though I may have caught it in its early stages, it's really scaring me. I've read it usually starts in one hand before it occurs in both, but I don't know for sure because they tell you different things everywhere you search.
I am a student, and so I must spend a lot of time working on my computer. This is especially true as it is my senior year and I have hard classes that require a lot of writing and, thus, typing on my laptop.
With this post I am reaching out to anyone who also suffers or has suffered from this condition for guidance and advice. What should I do?
