T'was I (Hi Susan!).

On my last job, I feel like I had two different types of pain - my arms and
shoulders hurt from keyboarding, my wrist and hands hurt from mousing. I
could get a little relief by switching from mouse to keyboard, or vice versa.


I've never suffered from CTS, nor do my wrist and hand hurt from
mousing, but I have noticed my shoulder (specifically my
deltoids) hurts after prolonged mousing. Is anyone else
experiencing this problem?
