Do You Suffer From ‘Selfie Wrist?’
The frequent use of cell phones to take selfies has led to an actual medical condition related to carpal tunnel.
Dr. Levi Harrison of San Francisco is warning his patients of a condition he calls 'selfie wrist,' resulting from the often - awkward poses needed to capture the perfect selfie. He says a sharp pain or tingling may result from holding phones too long without moving them and turning the wrist inward for a long period of time.
Selfies have already been deemed potentially hazardous to your health; a study earlier this year found that 259 people died in association with taking selfies, many of which were from here in the U.S. Even Kim Kardashian isn't taking selfies anymore, so that should tell you something.
