Ever since the KR Retreat, I have been knitting like a crazy woman, and my right hand is really aching! I don't know if the pain is caused from overuse or from the multiple socks I've been knitting on size 1 circulars.
The pain is centered around the pad below my thumb. My wrist is sore also. I wonder if it could be carpal tunnel syndrome?
I've even gone a few days in a row without picking up my needles and yarn. I've tried to keep ibuprofen in my system, but I'm going to switch to naprosyn (Aleve) in order to only take it twice a day (instead of 3 times a day). I switched my mouse at my work computer to the other side, it's a good thing I'm lefthanded.
Does anyone have any ideas how to relieve these symptoms? I know there are a few nurses who read my blog. (Mom? Sis? Daughter?) HELP!!!!!
