It's time to talk to your doctor if you have any of these symptoms in your hands, arms, neck or shoulders and they come on during or after work:
  • tingling,
  • weakness in the arms or shoulders,
  • clumsiness,
  • painful sore arms, neck or shoulders,
  • difficulty doing everyday tasks,
  • cold hands.
Take action now — if RSI is ignored it can lead to a chronic pain condition! This website has lots of information and tools that can help you understand and respond to RSI.
