hand/Wrist problems

CrawfishCrawfish Joined: Posts: 21
so after playing a couple of weeks ago, my wrist and hand started hurting pretty bad, so i stopped using it for about a week, within that time, it also became numb-ish at times. well it pretty much went back to normal. but a couple of days ago my wrist started feeling tight. no real pain, no loss of motion or grip strength really. but this tight sensation keeps happening. like there's pressure on it or something. I stopped using it again, but I don't have the money to see a doctor. does anyone know what i can do? and how do the top players prevent injury?

    Hmm, what kind of input device are you playing with?

    You should see a doctor because ergenomically the PS4 controller shouldn't be causing you discomfort unless you're playing way too long.

    could be wrist tendonitis/De Quervain's Tenosynovitis but I'm no doc so I wouldn't assume it is. I have the condition and my hands and forearms can go numb/tingly from straining my hands too much.

    I wear wrist splints when I know I'm gonna be doing hand intensive type work, they help slightly but your range of motion with your wrists are hindered.
