The Dreaded Bloggeritis

Lately, I have been reading about a few people coming down with... dunh, dunh, dunh- the dreaded bloggeritis. Ok, I know bloggeritis is not an actual ailment.. but wrist problems are a big problem for all of you who are hooked up to your computer all day. I found this great article in Health Magazine about some of the common aches and pains that people experience. Plus, in addition to explaining the condition it also shows great stretches and other pain remedies you could use or talk with your doctor about. Another great idea is to purchase a hand wrap, and if you feel some tenderness starting, throw it on to battle the inflammation, hopefully the pain will stop there before it gets worse.

These are some warning signs that will tell you if things have gotten "worse"

~Inability to carry objects or use the arm~
~Injury that causes deformity of the joint ~
~Wrist pain that occurs at night or while resting~
~Wrist pain that persists beyond a few days ~
~Inability to straighten or flex the joint ~
~Swelling or significant bruising around the joint or forearm~
~Signs of an infection, including fever, redness, warmth~

enjoy the read
