Cell Phones Making Flares Worse!

Cell Phones Making Flares Worse!

I know my pain is due to several factors including fibromyalgia, however my pain gets even worse when I use my phone( like I’m doing right now lol!) Tech neck and tech thumb are real!!! My neck, upper back, shoulders, And. hands especially thumbs, hurt So bad when on my phone! It’s hard to break the habit! Anyone else notice these issues?

Fingers, wrist, neck, shoulder and sometimes get a headache. I’m the same as Lee though. I was so alone with all this for so many years and now we all know what we are talking about. God bless you all ☃️🧤👢🧣❄️☔️😎🥶🌺🦄🦋🦉🐥

Yes, writing, texting cause me lots of hand, neck and eye problems. The blue light is a problem.

It is really sad. I was alone in regard to my illness for so many years. I find this group with many of the problems I have. Then, it hurts to communicate. Well, that just means I have to do it in moderation. Is it easy? No!

I have not used dictation yet. My phone does not capitalize or use punctuation.

Good luck all. I have really enjoyed my friendships in our forum.
