WoW related hand injurys?
As Im sitting here currently typing this out, my ring finger on my left hand is killing me. No, this didnt just happen. Its been apart of a nagging pain that started a few months back while raiding. Keep in mind that I am a mechanic, and that is probably not helping the situation.
Im in moderately successful guild that raids 3d/3h schedule. We cleared all content on heroic a few months back, enough to get us the #2 spot on our server. I am also a prot/arms warrior. When it came time to do Heroic Spine, I was chosen to be the blood tank because of my personal ability, my characters talents, and my mobility. Having a infinite taunt helps too. I know people will laugh, but Im normally a clicker. For that fight, getting to the second tendon was an issue because I couldnt click the add, click taunt, then hit abilities fast enough. So I decided to keybind taunt to my #1 button. Quick, easy, near my movement buttons...great. We started progressing and after 2 weeks or so, downed it.
Sometime during this, I started developing an issue with my ring finger. (The same one used to press #1.) My finger was getting sore around the middle knuckle. Being a trooper, I played through the pain, trying not to let anyone in the group down. Its been about 3 months now, and the damn pain wont stop. It goes away periodically, but never seems to be longer than a day and its back.
Has anyone else here developed issues with their hands from gaming? What should I do? (Besides seeing the Dr, Im going to ask him about it when I go in for a physical which is coming up in a few short months.)
