Hand Pain

The heel bone in my right hand (that one on the underside of your hand below your pinky before your arm) has been hurting lately. I think I smacked it on something a while ago. What’s bad about it is my hand rests on that bone quite a bit while I’m using a mouse, and it hurts. It’s getting better, but it still sucks. That pain also made me remember that I sometimes get an aching pain on the top of my right forearm, which led me to reading about Computer Related Repetitive Strain Injury and what the author’s done to fix his problems. I also ran across some nice ideas for correct monitor placement. Although I don’t think my monitor will fit on my desk like that. Perhaps if I cut a hole in it and suspend the monitor with a harness? Now tell me what you think.
