I was diagnosed last year with carpal tunnel in both wrists soon after I was
married. You see, I had been otherwise occupied before I went on my
honeymoon...and left a very high wide HUGE pile of artwork to be mounted
when I got back..well, you can see where this is going. My return was about
two weeks before the artshow...by the time the show hit I was wearing a
brace on one arm and soaking them both at night. It was so very painful and
it was all from that stapling motion. This year I am much more aware of
spending time matting and I do some wrist exercises and make sure to take
breaks. The doctor said that the initial injury could have occured when I
was in college..I was in fashion design and I was a beading, appliquing,
hand sewing fool. I sometimes have pain when I write for short/long periods
of time.Heres to healing all who are afflicted with this pain in the behind
syndrome!!!! good night! Stephanie
