Get braces. Now.

Hi Tasha,

I don't think we've met, but Kragore's a mutual friend.

12 years ago working for LL Bean I wound up with carpal tunnel in both wrists. The braces really do help, and can also prevent further damage. The Catherder got me a new set for my birthday a few years back, they help so much when my wrists are hurting.

If you get to the point that you're having shooting pains up your arms... stop right away, and see your doctor. If you work through it, you're risking really nasty surgery. Probably workman's comp, but still...

Best wishes,

Re: Get braces. Now.

Got one. Using it. I don't like it, and I don't use it when I'm working because I get so messy, but luckily I'm ambidextrous enough to use my right hnd to scoop.

See, I only use my left hand to type, due to a freaky broken arm nearly twenty years ago, so having my left wrist laid up is a little disturbing. I think it'll be all right eventually, though. I need to take some Motrin later.

Thanks a lot, though. I appreciate the concern.
