Re: Fighting tendonitis

Bought a new mice for home. It helps.

Exercise seems to make the pain go away faster, which is good. Still trying to be off the computer so I can relax the wrist more.

Gotta buy a new mice for work to and a wrist rest. I just want not to get worse, don't want to have any complications on the future.

Re: New PC?

I like the 6 year warranty on the NZXT one. It's a bit pricey but it think it would fit nice in the case! So I decided to leave my components as they are for now, and focus in my peripherals. Keyboard http://www.corsair.com/pt-pt/gaming-keyboards/vengeance-gaming-keyboards?keyboardmodel=K70|&key...

Thanks for the responses. The fact is prices on components are quite high here in Portugal, and even if i could sell the current one for say 900$ it would still take me quite an amount to build up a new one.

New PC?

Hi guys. I might have an option to sell my full system to a co-worker (on my sig). It could be an opportunity to make an upgrade. I know my system is still quite decent, but it could be a nice time to upgrade to the Freesync world, 2M resolutions and a updated graphics card with all goodies (AMD pre...

Re: Fighting tendonitis

Don't know what it's like in the US but in the UK your employer is legally required to meet certain ergonomic standards - we'd ask for DSE desk assessment. The solution is to change it up; Most people opt for a pen-tablet. Vertical mice for others. If you want to use a mouse a home you should avoid...

Thank you for your suggestions. I'll start by trying new gear (mouse and wrist rest) and try to be more careful about posture, I know that it's very important.

Hi all. As the subject says, I would like recommendations from you to fight the strain on my mouse wrist, since I usually spend 10h of my day in a computer, both at home and at work. The most forward think I can think off is to don't use the computer at home, so I can have more rest hours per day. O...
