Wikipedia on carpal tunnel syndrome: Even so it might be a good idea to start thinking about how much time you spend doing the same stuff over and over. I for one completely stopped masturbating when I read that, but then I realised it's all about finding a healthy balance. I downloaded this awesome application called workrave to help me with that.
