I am getting carpal tunnel syndrome in my right hand, from overuse. Really annoying. But...I wanted to share with everyone this AWESOME brace I found at Michael's craft store. Here's the link:
Glove with Massaging Ergo Beads
It has a little bead pad for the area of the hand that rests on the keyboard/edge of the table when typing, and makes the angle much less severe, so my fingers reach DOWN instead of UP. It also has a stiff wrist back for extra support. The brace is reversible and quite nice to wear, even helps me with hand writing (I am a student and take alot of notes so I love this brace!). I use it in combination with a really thick-gripped pen I found at Staple's.
Michael's also has some nice fingerless mitts for increasing circulation and thus helping keep cold fingers warm: Comfort Gloves
I tried those on too and want to get them at some point, but the brace is more important for now.
Hope that helps someone else! ^^
I am taking a vacation for the holidays, have 3 months before I enter my next school thing, so I'm going to get a proper brace for my poor hand and take some time off. Might look into some vitamin B-6 and the like; I have been researching treatment. I don't often have wrist pain; the symptoms are mostly a really tight feeling, and include the little finger (which is unusual, but the sensation is mostly around my index and middle finger). My index knuckle is REALLY tight feeling, and I have a constant cramp between my index and thumb muscles. Hopefully taking a break will help, I usually heal well. We'll see!
