Question: Can anyone tell me this RSI thing? Is it possible for your arms to feel heavy and ache all day long, but the pain is not so bad that you cannot do things. Sometimes I think I’m imaging it. Sometimes I can’t chop, clean and drive without the pain. Thanks for your help.
Answer 1: Yes – definitely – all of that! It’s *not* all in your mind.
Answer 2: Yes, all the symptoms described are classic – I have them all and a few more for example it is painful to carry peel potatoes, hold a book, cycle, wash windows, anything that includes gripping as well as the usual driving etc., My arms feel like lead weights and it feels like you could twang the nerves/veins like a guitar. They’re so tight.
