Now, I've got two. First one was from hitting my fist against the sofa, but hitting the wood frame part after losing by .12 seconds in a race. That was early Dec. That led to me having to grip the Mad Catz slightly differently. That lead to the CTS so now I have a wrist brace.

 

I guess that is technically two, so I've got three actually. Yesterday, I strained by right leg while playing an intense round of TDM where I stood up to get more leverage. I doubled over for about 10 seconds and got wasted. Today I realized I still feel some sort of strain in that same leg.

 

Does anybody have any injuries?

Any specific techniques to alleviate injuries like CTS and RSI?

Do you do warm ups and if so, what? Wrist stretches would not have prevented the leg injury. I know you're supposed to take 15 minute breaks every two hours, but that's not realistic so I usually just skip it.

Physical injuries from playing games? :lol:

I take a break every 30 minutes to reduce any chances of getting blood clots(mostly pee or snack breaks lol) and also it depends with the way you sit.

Sometimes when I'm playing while lying in bed my wanking hand gets tingly. Sometimes its the other hand but usually the wanking one (I'm a lefty). I just shake it out and carry on.

If you get an injury from hitting something, or playing this game period. You have some real serious problems that you need to work out. Good luck.

You're missing out on a golden opportunity by shaking it out. What you should be should be doing is waiting until that arm completely numbs up then rubbing a quick one out. It feels like an uncoordinated stranger is jerking you off. Unless of course that is what you were actually referring to when you said "shaking it out".

Running tank shifts like Scubadave does is enough to tell you he's different...

I think your anger was the reason for your injuries, it really had nothing to do with gta, or playing it too long.

P. S

You sound like a hypochondriac,

Cause I like so many posts I get restricted from liking. Why post when I can like what I agree with / find funny?

I crushed my ps3 controller with my hands, cause I missed a 2 billion dollar bounty by literally 5 seconds. I got a couple of cuts from the plastic

You have girlish hands. I would enjoy a handjob please. Also last time I punched a wall my fist of steel went through it and I didn't even bruise. You are clearly a delicate little flower.
