Re: How is it now?
My mouse wrist is generally stiff and sore, though the pins and needles died down over lunch time, thank christ.

However, I think it's time to do some rearranging ...

Yes.

You could also cry sick and skive off work (or at least off heavy mouse work at work) for a day or two to give it a bit of a rest...

Unless you're already doing that, of course:-)

Yikes!
I do hope you get better soon!

Do you know if someone can do an ergonomic assessment of your workspace(s)? My office had one done, got me a load of new helpful thingys...but still waiting on superior chair.

I have crappy wrists, comes from having almost every aspect of my live revolve around computers.

I had a nice massage the other day (company morale thing) and the pain left totally for a while.

Apparently wrist pain can be caused (or increased) by tense beack and shoulder muscles. Time to try shelling out for a real massage, see how that effects it.
