Early in 2005 the muscles in my forearms started to hurt. In the beginning it was only a slight irritation, but over the course of about six months it gradually got worse, until it was so bad I actually thought I would have to switch careers and stop programming altogether. I realized fairly quickly that I had RSI – Repetitive Stress Injury. Fortunately, through a combination of actions, I managed to get rid of the pain, and I am now completely recovered.
