Computer users may complain of eyestrain and headaches after prolonged use. 
Users are also at risk of physical injury after long hours of working in front of a 
computer. Long work periods, bad posture, poor work habits, stress, 
inadequate working conditions, personal health and other factors greatly 
increase the risk of physical injury.
Incorrect computer usage may lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, 
tenosynovitis or other musculoskeletal disorders. The following symptoms may 
appear in the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck or back:

numbness, or a burning or tingling sensation

If you have these symptoms, or any other recurring or persistent discomfort 
and/or pain related to computer use, consult a physician immediately and
