Take from someone who has has CDT, cumulative trauma disorder … also goes by other acronyms, pay close attention to ergonomics. Carpal tunnel syndrome hurts, and neck/shoulder problems are not far behind!

Sitting comfortably when using the keyboard or the computer is extremely important. When I was working I declined any ergo checks but after my issues with CDT, the ergonomics team made sure that everything was set up properly at my work station PC to reduce the possibility of a relapse.

I had carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists! During the day it really didn’t bother me but trying to sleep was next to impossible. After nerve shocks, physical therapy, and cortisone injections it finaly got relief!
