My hands have been steadily developing a painful symptom when playing. So far this has only happened with StarCraft and games similar to it (such as DotA). What happens is that after playing about 3 or 4 games my hands start to feel extremely stiff and painful to move (almost like cemented in the home row position for touch typing). My fingers look and feel bent in a very unnatural position and just refuse to move. There's also a faint pins and needles feeling in them (though not as prominent as say a leg falling asleep). I usually finish the match I'm in and quit after that. It's really bothersome when I want to keep playing but it greatly reduced my ability to play matches.

Really hope it isn't anything too serious.

Sounds pretty similar to carpal tunnel syndrome. Sooner you get it checked out the easier it is to treat/heal.

Best of luck

The same thing has been happening to my right elbow. I think that I may be getting arthritis in my elbow though.

It sounds like RSI (repetitive strain injury), its pretty common for gamers who play games that require a lot of continuous rapid clicking, or keyboard action. Go see a doctor about it, depending on how serious it is, it can be managed or healed.

Maybe it's the way you're typing/clicking?

I do a crap load of typing/clicking at work in 10 hour shifts and I don't have any inhibiting side effects. Sometimes I have to click my knuckles to free them up a bit but never any pain etc.

Yeah, it sounds a lot like the kind of stuff that RSI blankets. Definitely see a doctor. Probably just wind up with a referral to an orthopedic surgeon to actually get anything done, but hey.

I had almost the same symptoms in my hands and feet. I was diagnosed with diabetes. Maybe you should have that checked out as well.
