Some information I gathered while having carpal tunnel syndrome myself! I got it almost six months ago and even though it’s mostly gone I can still feel it when I work too hard. 

I want to point out that I have NO medical training and that you SHOULD consult a doctor if you suspect that you have CTS. I will however try to do my best to answer questions if anyone has any.

I don’t re-blog much, but this is really good stuff to know (in addition to being a rad comic!). Take heed, especially all you art students working yourselves silly! I’ve heard sooo many scary stories about animators ruining their hands to such an extent that they can no longer work. I get carpal tunnel flare ups myself and even though the wrist brace i got makes me feel all cyberpunk it is NOT worth it.

Please take care of your hands, peeps!
