    Default Getting massive pain in wrist, any options?

    So using my left pointing finger over and over and over for 12+ years of Multi Box gaming is really starting to hurt, badly, down to my wrist. Especially with GSE and macros on all 5 toons and using my #1 button to spam. I just spam spam spam spam. Right hand controls mouse obviously, and that is the logitech multibutton one with like 16 buttons on the side or whatever (G600 I think, which I use zero of, really need to try and set that up) but again, just not good at that stuff. and not sure what I can use it for. I know, sounds pathetic.

    Is there anything out there that I can use legitimately to help with this. I heard of something like Auto Hot Key. I read a bit on it but Im just not tech savvy and didnt understand it and seemed like it may be banable. I have a Corsair keyboard, not sure if that has anything legit. I have tried different keys but its so awkward after doing it one way for so long. Any ideas?

    Is auto hot key bannable? Foot pad won’t work because my foot will be just as tired lol.

    No, the program itself is not black-flagged by the WoW client, but I assume you're referring to a topic that was just recently discussed.

    The other alternative is to start doing wrist and forearm stretches: https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...+levi+harrison
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.

    Ahh didn’t see that thread. Thank you. Been doing those exercises for literally 5
    years. Too much time playing MMORPG’s and using 1 as my hot key heh.
    Thanks MiRai.

    Maybe a keyboard with this could help + maybe also you can exhange the ones that are in different footpadels aswell: https://www.cherrymx.de/en/mx-origin...ed-silver.html

    Also make sure you are sitting correct, posturewise, take 10-15 min break per hour, have a good chair.

    I dunno about you, but if i get pain, i stop and evaluate why thats the case. I wouldnt dare carry on playing while in pain, fingers or back etc

    You could try switch, use mouse with left hand and keyboard with right. It takes around 3 weeks or so to get decently good at it. Obviously frustrating the first weeks, but could be worth it for you in the long run.

    Im getting old and worn aswell, just have to listen closely to what the body says. Whenever i get some light backpain, 45-60 min casual walk in the forrest or on uneven terrain and im just as new again.

    Also, try spam that key less, no rush if possible, also make the key activate the keypress at "when released" too = double the actions per click.

    Also: maybe it would be benefical to see a specialist about the wrist. If its "that" bothersome.

    As wowbox40 says... change hands. Twenty years ago I got some carpal tunnel symptoms and successfully became left-handed. Sure you will have to switch a lot, if not most, of your keybinds around, but moving your mouse to the left is really the key to relieving stress on your right hand.

    For pain relief try an infrared heating pad. Quite expensive but the heat penetrates and quickly eases the pain.

    I would stay away from that "hold down the button and it spams commands until i release the button" as thats clearly automation. If that was allowed it would be a stand still farmers dream: just tape down the key and watch netflix. Better stop while you can. Personally i dont see the fuzz about minmaxing dps, its not worth the strain on the fingers spamming. Instead, figure out a relaxing tempo that suits you, and without getting any pain or discomfort. Then stick to that.

    Yeah, having second thoughts about it now also. Been using last hour and it just feels illegal. Really not worth the risk. Going to try switching the 1 key to a mouse button
