|Just been to to doctors after noticing small cysts on my left middle finger - diagnosis is ganglions caused by RSI (the constant nature of typing has worn out the protective membrane in places around joints in my finger, allowing fluid to leak out and cause cysts)|
It's not causing me any pain currently, though I have noticed slightly decreased mobility in the finger they're on.
Doctors advice was mainly to invest in speech recognition software (I work as a support analyst/developer during the day and am bootstrapping an idea in the off-time) so I wondered if anyone else on HN suffered similar, and had any suggestions for things that might help (I mentioned it in #startups and was told that change of posture and exercises would possibly help, something my doctor didn't mention)
I already take regular breaks from the keyboard (usuaully 5mins or so out of every 60 I step away completely during the work day)
Oh, and here's what mine look like for reference
