I've hurt my thumb. Probably from playing too much. So I'll not be posting or playing until ACO comes out. Hopefully it'll feel better by then.

Yes, take a few days off and rest it. Watch some shows on that new TV.

I wish that I could put my arm in a cast. I keep waking up laying on it. Doctor is booked out too so I can't see him this week. Taking another break from games today. Asssassin's Creed was good and I'll tell you about it when I can type longer. Posting hurts my arm.

I've wrapped my hand in a huge Elastoplast bandage. It's hard to type but it'll stop me from using my thumb. Tried to play the Witcher today but I couldn't because the pain started to come back. Mum thinks that it is RSI (repetitive strain injury).

Has anyone else had RSI? I looked it up and it is common in gamers.

I have not but I can understand how it must feel, I injured my knee as teen and afterwards had a lot of pain and weakness in it and waited almost 3 years before I could get it sorted due to been passed about doctors then hospital waiting lists. It wasn't life threatening or preventing me from walking etc so I was bottom of the list to get surgery, understandable but still annoying at the time.

Hopefully you get to see your doctor soon and they can get it sorted out 😎

It's confirmed I have RSI in my right thumb. It is very common in gamers. I can still game, but not as much as I used to. I've reprogrammed my Elite controller so the the X button and the right trigger are switched for the Witcher 3. Of course I have to watch my other fingers. It's a life time thing so I've got to be careful.

I've got a cream full of painkillers for flareups. It's a bit upsetting & my arm is sore so I'll write more later

Hope you're healed soon. Sometimes my finger pads get hard or sore when I play games too much,especially racing games which require constant pressure applied to my finger pads.

The doctor tells me that RSI is permanent. It will feel better as long as I don't use it much. So I'm trying to learn to play with fingers I'm not used to using.

I WILL be back. I'm going to the doctor next week. I'm starting to think it might be my ganglion tumours causing this. The pain is through out my hands and arms now. I can't play games and I've been watching Star Trek and Foyle's War since this started.

See you later. I don't know when but I shall return.

oh my, tumor huh? Hope you get better soon and be back here once you get some healing ^_^
I'm never a Star Trek fan nor Foyles, I don't even now what the latter is. But Star Trek, I know some...... things. I guess.

Thanks guys!

Went to the doctor and looks like it might be a bit more serious than we thought. Not life threatening though. Two possible options for my condition Carpal Tunnel Syndrome which is curable with surgery however it doesn't make sense for all of my symptoms. 2 fibromyalgia makes sense for all the other symptoms I was put through a test that was positive but there will be more tests to be sure. Fibromyalgia can be treated but not cured. Might have both.

I'm scared but a bit hopeful after all the treatment options are better than the RSI tendinitis which is just painkillers. Next tests include a nerve endings test where they electroshock my arms, blood tests, and a scan of my spine. Starting a new tablet tonight that might elevate some of my fibromyalgia symptoms. Hope that they work as I could barely walk home today.

I got a steam card for my birthday so I've brought some simple point and click adventures to entertain me. Can't play them a lot and I have to take breaks a LOT. Still watching Foyle's War Star Trek DS9 and some Babylon 5. Got each series in entirety on DVD.

I hope you get hooked thade I did!

HERE YOU GO Kerwiny. Also http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0310455/

My mother has fibromyalgia . She's had it for nearly 30 years. She needs to use traditional medicine to relax her muscles and live in a warmer climate to relive the muscle tension. Before she was diagnosed,she lost lots of weight and the pain spread all around her body and she couldn't eat or function. For over a year she deteriorated until we took her to Thailand thinking she was going to die,but then the doctors in Thailand quickly realized it was fibromyalgia,they said it's common with Asian women who come from warmer climates and move to colder climates.

She says she still feels the pain in her muscles,but the pain is manageable .She says staying in a warm climate and stress free environment makes her feel much better. Before she was diagnosed,she was bed ridden for a year,and didn't eat much and became a skeleton. Some of the Australian doctors said the pain was all in her mind,or they thought it was some sort of rare cancer that they couldn't diagnose . She lives in Australia with her boyfriend during the warmer months,but during winter she and him go to Thailand. She is very vulnerable to stress,she says if she gets stressed the pain in her muscles takes days to reduce.

Tell her I'm praying for her and if she has any tips to tell me through you.

I'm going to try and sleep soon. TY for the reply.

It's good the doctors are narrowing things down and can get treatment for you, hope you get better soon. Speaking of DVDs do you know of any companies in Australia that have a website and sell Australian shows on DVD/Blu-Ray?
