You finally get some time off from work and you book the perfect vacation. Maybe it’s a beautiful resort, a forest adventure or snow covered mountains. The only problem is you don’t see any of it because you are on your phone. Not only do you miss out on the beautiful scenery and conversation with friends or the locals but you could end up with a severe injury.
A Chinese woman decided she wanted to spend a week long vacation playing video games on her phone and rather than leaving with amazing memories she left with her hand so badly cramped she was unable to use it.
Officially she was suffering from tenosynovitis, an inflammation of the fluid-filled sheath (called the synovium) that surrounds the tendons. Basically it meant her hand was totally paralyzed in the phone holding position.
Luckily doctors were able to treat the condition and she regained full use of her hand but it’s a good lesson. Candies do not need to be crushed that badly. Put the phone down and enjoy your holiday.
