Socoder -> Health Matters -> Numb Hands

Does anyone have hands that get numb when using mouse or phone? I can only do about 10 minutes before I need to take a short break. Carpal tunnel! No more online gaming for me.

Lately I've noticed numbness from using my Nintendo Switch in handheld mode too much lately.
Bluetooth or Wifi?

Having not used a mouse for much of a decade (using the laptop's trackpad instead) my recent Amiga revival, with its mouse functionality, reminded me just how bad those things are for your wrist!!
Gahhhh!!!!

But.. not numb..
That doesn't sound very good!

My brother had the same thing. He had some surgery done that cleared it all up. He had it worse though. He would just drop things from his hands.

It is a kind of blockage of some nerves I think. Surgery clear those blockage and it should be fixed. I'm not going to get anything done though, with the state of healthcare right now.

I had this for a while and ended up doing crazy stuff like resorting to running my wrist under cold water for 10 minutes which seemed to fix the problem, at least for a while.

A good supportive mousemat helps a lot, and yes, of course, me being me, I have those anime gel booby mouse mats, which to be fair , have worked really well to prevent the pain from resurfacing for almost a decade! I'm sure you can get regular ones also, should your workplace not be so open to them

For the past year or so I've been using a vertical mouse, not great for gaming but a lot better to use.
