For a couple of days already I’ve had a pretty bad pain in my right hand, fingers, wrist, and forearm. I know the culprits: writing code on a MacBook flat keyboard, using the trackpad, and on my free time, using my phone and playing video-games.
I’m writing this on my phone with my left thumb only, my right hand wrapped tightly to ease the pain. I simply cannot use my right hand. I’ve even woken up multiple times during the past couple nights because of the pain.
But how will I ever achieve my goals if I can’t write code? “To get better, write more code”, is the best advice, but what if one can’t?...
So I’m looking for advice from people who suffer or have suffered similar problems. How do you keep going? Ice? Heat? Fancy ergonomic keyboard? Speech-to-text code?
