RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury)

I take a rest this past few days, that’s why I didn’t have a post.. not because I have still aftershock because of my newly website. Your wrong!
Last Saturday after I wake up in the morning my hands are too tired and also I’m suffering in backache. I’m not in the mood to post for my blog. Then I got wonder why I feel this.
Suddenly, I remembered about my professor said when I was in college about this symptoms. It reminds me about the RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury). Oh my gosh! Did I have that?? Let’s check it out..!

what is RSI?
Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)- is a potentially debilitating condition resulting from overusing the hands to perform a repetitive task, such as typing, writing, or clicking a mouse. Anyone who uses a computer regularly is at risk and should know about RSI. Unfortunately, most people are uninformed and do not understand what RSI is or how serious it can be.
What are the symptoms of RSI?
The primary warning sign of RSI is pain in the upper extremities (fingers, palms, wrists, forearms, shoulders). The pain may be burning, aching, or shooting. It could be local (e.g., fingertips) or diffuse (e.g., the entire forearm). The pain will typically be increased after a long session of computer use. Keep in mind, however, you can have severe RSI without experiencing pain.

SYMPTOMS OF RSI
Do you experience:
-Fatigue or lack of endurance?
-Weakness in the hands or forearms?
-Tingling, numbness, or loss of sensation?
-Heaviness: Do your hands feel like dead weight?
-Clumsiness: Do you keep dropping things?
-Lack of strength in your hands? Is it harder to open jars? Cut vegetables?
-Lack of control or coordination?
-Chronically cold hands?
-Heightened awareness? Just being slightly more aware of a body part can be a clue that something is wrong.
-Hypersensitivity?
-Frequent self-massage (subconsciously)?
-Sympathy pains? Do your hands hurt when someone else talks about their hand pain?
