Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from slacking?

The key to every slackers success can be summed up in two words:

Alt + Tab

I literally sit with my hand (specifically my thumb and index fingers almost constantly on those keys) in this position for most of my day.

I have been doing this for at least two years now.

What has been happening slowly but surely now is that I have a sharp pain on the top of my left hand (the alt+tab hand). It's very specifically located in the centre of my hand in between the bones that are connected to my index and middle finger.

The pain is most intense when my hand is in the alt+tab position.

Has my slacking finally taken its toll? Is there anything I can do to make this better? Anyone else suffering from precisely the same thing?

It's really inconvenient, but you COULD try using Alt + Esc instead. A slight change in your hand position might make all of the difference.

Besides, once you work your way up to management level, then the entire issue of frivolous internet usage will go away.

my mouse hand is sooo fucked..

if I rotate it,
you can hear snap crackle pop.

Also there is a sharp pain right down the center when it's in the mouse position.

And don't even get me started on my mouse callous.

I think my boss is on to my alt + tab movements. He sees me do it everytime he approaches. Then I get the inquisitive head turn.

Get a 3 or 4 button mouse. Make one of the buttons alt-tab. Or reprogram your keyboard so one of the useless buttons is alt-tab.
YAY!

This is such a Tommy thing to say.

BTW I knew Tommy when his name was still Tom.

Oddly, he was younger then.
