Health: Cell Phone Elbow thanks to excessive mobile use
We hear a great deal about how today’s mobile phones affect our health, and now according to an article on philstar, American orthopaedic specialists have stated that using your mobile phone too much can lead to “mobile phone elbow.”
Apparently 66 year old Donna Malloy noticed numbness in her hands when she spoke on her mobile phone for hours resulting in her dropping things in her left hand and she found it difficult to do needlework.
After a visit to her doctor she was diagnosed as suffering from “mobile phone elbow,” which is also known as cubital tunnel syndrome. The doc suggested surgery, after which Malloy said her hands “are now fine, it doesn’t bother me.”
Apparently the first symptoms of “mobile phone elbow,” include the aforementioned numbness, aching or tingling in the forearm and hand, and a pain which is similar to that of hitting your funny bone.
