Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Ack. For the last couple of months, I've noticed that when working at my computer, I end up with numb fingers after a while. I finally got annoyed enough with it to go see a doctor about it. He (unfortunately) confirmed my suspicion of carpal tunnel (pinched nerve) in my wrist. Now I get to work on my computer (or try to) with a brace on my hand. Typing isn't too bad (I'm a touch-typist), but using the mouse is a bear. I get to wear the brace at night too, yuck. But this is hopefully all it will take to help out. Since mine has been getting worse since I noticed at a pretty rapid pace, it may end up that I go back for a referral to an orthopedist. Whee. So the saga begins.
