    I would initially get a sore ass from sitting for so long but taking a stretch now and then and also moving my hydraulic chair up and down and just shifting my butt periodically seems to have mostly fixed that.

    My main issue now is a sore aching right arm. It feels almost dead and there is sharp yet dull (oxymoron?) painup in the forearm.

    Moving position doesn't seem to fix this.

    It is hindering my IM abilities so what can I do to resolve this?

    I've also tried using a rest under my wrist with some clothing mimicking a wrist rest but this doesn't seem to do anything...

    What else can I try? I've run out of ideas :D

    I don't exercise at all really these days...I do do squats when the sore butt/back come on and that seems to do good. Maybe doing more exercise will help with circulation and might help with this issue.

    If you are a obsessive porn addict, switch hands.
    If you switched hands and still feel the ache, prehaps a stressball could help?
    If that fails, visit a doctor or live with it.

    Always loved the word oxymoron. could say it all day :)

    How old are u if you mind me asking?

    Also you could just wear one of those wrist arm things that prevent RSI.

    There are tonnes of people that have office jobs sitting infront of a computer all day, you might just have bad posture

    Also exercise is essential.

    Hope this helps!

    Get checked out by an orthopedic dr....

    It could be just a strain, nerve compression or something else

    Its best to get checked out to arrest probs in their initial stages....

    No it's not some recent 'injury'.

    There is a consistent pattern that whenever I do long sessions of IM I get it so it's directly related to how long I spend at the comp without a break. It seem s to 'carry over' to the next day though since I went to bed last night and it hurt again as soon as I began this morning.

    I spose I'll take it as a sign to take a short break or do so before as a preventative measure.
