Discussion on: Hand and wrist pain?

Spent $1K at hand specialists and nerve test and took off from work for 1 week.

MD says, "Take a break from work."

What I learned:

  • Cannot get carpal tunnel from typing alone.
  • QWERTY is for masochists.

What to do:

  • Mechanical keyboard.
    • Colemak or Dvorak layout.
  • Proper posture.
    • When not typing, hold hands close to body, do not rest hands on keyboard.

May my suffering help another.
