If you do develop repetitive strain injury symptoms, it will be important to catch them quickly if you’re going to stand as good a chance as possible of stopping them progressing and hopefully reversing them. This can be tough, as they typically come on gradually over time after you’ve been carrying out monotonous tasks repeatedly, usually, but not always, in a work setting.
To increase your chances of doing so, it’s vital that you know what to look out for if your job or any other activity you carry out might put you at risk. Repetitive strain injury symptoms can range from the mild to the severe and often, but not exclusively, include the following: stiffness, aches and pains, cramps, tenderness, throbbing, tingling or numbness and cramp.
While any of these conditions by themselves or combined will not automatically mean that you’ll have developed some form or repetitive strain injury, it will certainly be worth getting yourself along to your doctor to get yourself checked out, especially if you work in a high-risk profession.
