I Cannot Type Anymore!

Last Update: January 20, 2020

Hello WA Family

I am going to be brief because as my tittle says, im finding it really hard to type. This is so painful and it's stressing me out big time.

For 2 weeks now I have been struggling with typing. My right hand is the one with the issue. It feels like my fore and middle fingers are asleep the whole time. When I try to type it becomes painful.

I believe I have RSI (repetitive strain injury). I plan to visit the doctor now that it seems to be getting worse. I tried resting longer but no help.


Has anyone ever dealt with RSI?

Please help me, my business depends on this!

I never dealt with RSI and I hope you get good medical advice, the only advice I can give is too listen to your body and take the rest you need. I have full body crps and sometimes my hands get so stiff and cold they refuse to move to the point my entire hand is just sleeping, heat always does wonders for my hands not sure if it does for you, maybe worth a try :) wish you lots of hugs

Thank you very much. I am taking it easy because I was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

It could be carpel tunnel. Have you tried wearing a brace? That may help, but I agree that you should see a doctor. That picture you posted wasn't an injury that happened to you was it. If so, then definitely see your doctor. OUCH!! That hurts to even look at it.

Take care

I was thinking of getting a brace but thought against it. Doctor first

I'm very sorry to hear of this Janet. This could also be carpal tunnel syndrome, I have experienced this in the past.

See a doctor, there are remedies for this. But even if all else fails, have no fear: you can use dictation to blog post through Dragon and never have to type again:)

No but had right hand Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) got the surgery been fine ever since. CTS came from ROM from working as a data entry clerk for a trucking company in my late 20’s. Now no problems. I use my hands to communicate in sign language so far by keeping my hands exercise daily with sign language no problems. I am in my mid 50’s so far no issues but I can imagine how painful that is. Hope a dr can tell you what you need for treatment.
