Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

This is definitely a possible injury of gaming. Here are a few things you can do to help. Buy a ergonomic keyboard and mouse. Also, you need to increase the height of the computer. This will also help you reduce the damage to the hand.

You can also try RICE to help you recover the injury.
Rest the wrist to reduce the pain and the swelling
Ice the wrist for 15 mins every hour
Compress the wrist by using a crepe bandage
Elevate the wrist by placing on top of 2 pillows and allow for the swelling to reduce.

Hope this helps you. All the best.
