Hi all,

Since I'm beginning to exhibit early symptoms of carpal tunnel, I thought I'd ask for personal experience with forestalling the syndrome.

I'm pretty sure the culprit is the mousing I do with my PC laptop. My Mac has a lowered keyboard and a wrist rest. The PC has an MS ergonomic keyboard. It's the mouse that gave me my first sharp pains. I've changed the mouse to one with a lower profile and dropped it onto the lowered shelf where my Mac stuff is. I can use the track pad on the PC laptop and get more vigilant about learning and using keyboard commands. I now know that one should take a break every 20 minutes or so. I've been shown some stretches to do. I plan to be a good girl and do my yoga daily.

Any additional suggestions?

Thanks for your help.
