Thanks for the well-wishes, Annesylvia. I think I was particularly vulnerable to the wrist problems because of my long-term, heavy computer use and having broken one of my wrists several years ago. The use of the toning sticks probably just pushed me over the edge.
For the past couple of weeks, I've been wearing splints on both wrists whenever I am on the computer (several hours a day) and will probably have to do that for the rest of my life. I also wear them after doing anything strenous with my hands/wrists (e.g. long distance driving, snow shoveling, etc.)
While the pain in my hands and fingers has improved considerably, things are still not perfect and I suspect this is a forever thing for me. My doctor (who also splints whenever she is on the computer) agrees.
