changing the habits will probably reduce the problems when you use the mouse, but still the muscles will be short and fragile.

the magic words here are: TRIGGERPOINTS and STRETCHING

first reset your body, then reset your desktop environment.


it was a mistake i made in the past.
I had problems from too much gaming, and i adjusted my chair, table, monitor, mouse and what not 1000 times also from ergonomic suggestions, noting every change in centimeters.
but in the end i still would get problems very shortly after i started to play(quake live).

it's three month now without games, and still no end in sight when i get rid of all the problems i collected from too much sitting infront of PC and playing games all those years(where i even moved some weights two times a week, and that with pretty much discipline).

Man that sucks. frown.gif The only problem i see for me is that I have not been gaming for years, I have only been gaming for 1 year. Yes, I have been doing 3d design for 4 years, but a lot of that was with a tablet so I have not been abusing my wrist for anything but basic internet surfing and maya or zbrush for mouse movement, so I just want to correct it now that I am just starting to get pain, numbness, and tingling in the last month or two. I am thinking yes, exercises for my wrists might be in order (stretching), and for sure figuring a way to get my mouse/keyboard at waist height instead of inches above me. I can probably just find a nice ergonomic mouse after reading all the suggestions here.
