wrist tendonitis?

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

wrist tendonitis?

Discuss. If you've had it, tell me about it. What helped, your general experience, etc etc?

Mine is probably due to computer overuse (I do a lot of writing and use computer for other day-to-day stuff as well), not helped by taking up archery, nor by the right-side weakness in general (neurological - but I think having weak muscles might strain the tendons more?).

Have googled a little bit and gotten some general tips (ice, rest, anti-inflammatories, generic wrist exercise sheet). Am kind of interested in any technologies for hands-free or less-using-of-hands computer use -- don't really know where to start, and of course, searching around the internet only makes my wrists worse, lol.


Thanks in advance, I'll check in as I can, looking forward to seeing what advice you have. Oh and hey, happy new year.

i had carpal tunnel not tendonitis. i had to start videotaping my lectures. also now when i use the computer i place it well back from the edge of the desk and support my entire forearm.
i guess it was maybe a b vitamin problem - i'd been slacking for a while there, and that's what they say is potentially useful for carpal tunnel. i still have a pinched nerve in there though and i wish i knew what percentage of my hand numbness was from that!
for your case i would think about doing a short term boost of the anti-inflammatory nutrients that are also suspect in ms. like d3 and magnesium and zinc. i know, broken record ;)

Not broken record ;-). Thanks! (And I don't know why it took me nearly a year to figure out that if it isn't carpal tunnel - clear emgs - hey, could be tendonitis, lol). I do need to be more diligent on remembering to take vitamins, right now I'm hitting about every other day.
