How do you work all day with all the pains in hands shoulders neck and watery eyes?
I got ergo chair, desk and keyboards, still not doing well.

    Freestyle ergo keyboard fixed my issues, though I made the switch at the first sign of wrist problems.

    I also nearly completely stopped coding outside of work hours. This is more due to young kids at home, just happened to be good timing (getting back into some side projects now though).

    What keyboard and mouse are you using? Not all ergonomic devices are the same quality. Also, exercise is very important. And get up and stretch every hour or so, if not now frequently.

    Evoluent mouse are the best. $100 but worth every penny.

    You can also try Logitech mouse as well.

    Kensington track ball is another option.

    But nothing beats Evoluent.

    Carpal tunnel is the easiest one to deal with. Switch mouse from left to right hand and switch the keyboard to a different size and format twice a day. If may seem like a crazy idea until you get used to.

  • I had serious neck issues in the past. Bringing my monitor to eye level and using less monitors side to side helped. I know only have two monitors. One right in front of me in landscape and the second next to it in vertical mode so that I don't have to turn my head around a lot and keep an upright posture.
