I believe too much editing gave me carpal tunnel syndrome. Nick says I should see a doctor. Instead, I bought a weird “handshake” mouse.

My primary strategy for recovery has been giving my hands a chance to rest, and changing some of my repetitive motions. I’ve switched from my trackpad to a titled, handshake-shaped wireless mouse. I also picked up a cheap capacitive stylus to use with my iPhone, a gel-filled wrist pad for my keyboard and these wrist/thumb support braces.
