Question Ever injured yourself playing UT ?

I"m going to the chiropractor for the first time because of UT. I think I must be shifting around in my chair too much. That, or I'm leaning to one side more than the other. I'm afraid I'm going to have to take a break from the game. I don't think I have a choice. This sucks. I'm totally bummed.

I just noticed yesterday that I seem to have developed a curve in my back. My right shoulder is slightly higher than my left when I stand "erect". I have decided this is from UT. MY mouse arm is usually a bit higher than my keynoard arm and now I am crooked. Oh well, I guess I will look like Igor in a couple more weeks!

keep your mouth closed when u are going up, less drag, u go higher, open it as soon as u are starting to go down again, more drag, you'll float down

I had to switch the mouse to my left hand to correct an earlier neck problem on my right side. Now I'm so used to it I can't go back. I must be raising my right shoulder too much when pressing the direction keys. I don't Know... still bummed.

Thats Something Boobalah

I injured my left elbow from playing Ut. My elbow sets right on top of my desk and from the last year of playing alot of Ut my elbow swelled up bigtime. I almost had to go to the doctor it hurt so bad. That just happened Aug. 21, 2001 and now the swelling has gone down and there is hardly anymore pain. Missed a little work. Had to slow down playing for the past week to let it heal. Thought I might have to lose my left arm it hurt so bad.

I got this red, weeping sore on my... nevermind.

Neck, eye, and ass strain for late night frag fests is about it.

See, humping is contagious!



Boobalah, ass strain from sitting too long, not from trying to pinch a monsterloaf or anything.

I had (and still have sometimes) a severe lower back pain from slouching in my chair during prolonged gaming sessions. So now I have to keep my back as straight as possible when sitting at my comp. Also , I have recently developed a minor case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in my right hand from clicking the mouse too much.

yep, I tend to slouch. I'm going to the spine cracker because it's my upper middle back. I think my shoulders are looking a little rolled forward also. Damn this game !!!
