Sore wrists from whirlwinding to much

Anyone else getting sore wrists from whirlwinding to much on your barb?

Seems like since MP came out, the whirlwinding doubles with each MP lvl and my wrist is getting very sore and could become serious, I don't want to stop whirlwinding as I enjoy that build, can we implement an alternative movement?

I setup a joystick, however I cannot get tight enough circles... lol

Sounds like you get way too involved in the whole spinning haha.

You should train yourself to be ambidextrous. Give your wrist a rest!

seriously never had a problem before MP lvl so I think it's just spin after spin for hours at a time.

i've stretched and it feels better but just FYI for anyone out there, it could become something very serious.

@Fyredefyre - i'm training 5 days a week, grip/forearm strength is not a problem. that said it's a little different than repetitive movements for hours at a time.

I can't tell if your being serious or dirty or both lol

Hey Zues, don't take it personally, the subject was ripe for the double-entendre treatment.

Yes, you should take it seriously if you are suffering discomfort from repetitive mouse movement.
Regular rest and stretching should be sufficient, however you may want to look into OOS (RSI) hint sheets.

maybe you should not ma$turbate after playing or vice versa.

maybe allocate separate days for each activity, go for a run and then maybe take up rowing???
