How can I make the pains of tendonitis subside?

I’ve had tendonitis in my right hand for months now. I didn’t know I had it until a few days ago when I saw a doctor. I thought it was just a sprain.
It hurts so much, and no matter what I do, it wont stop. I haven’t used it at ALL and still am not, but it just wont stop hurting. What do I do?

  1. If you use computers, the first thing, is to ZERO the contact with computers, for some months.
    A healthy person can use computer a bit each day, without never getting tendonitis. But since you already have it, even this little can stop your healing process. It is better to zero now and get healthy again.

    Just changing computer ergonomics or giving small pauses and stretches will not be enough for solving an already installed tendonitis problem. If you really want to use computers, the only definitive solution is Speech Recognition software, which allows you to command the computer by voice.

    There is Dragon Naturally Speaking, that (for me) is much expensive, and I cannot afford. Happily, there is also speech recognition built-in in Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can use it at no additional cost.

    The only drawback in Win 7 speech recognition is its way to click
    anywhere on the screen. If you want to click at an specific spot on
    the screen, there is a cumbersome "mouse grid" which requires a lot of

    For this issue, I found a tiny program called Voice Finger ( ) that does a wonderful job at
    clicking anywhere on the screen. It has a massive grid that relays as
    a watermark over the screen, and you click anywhere by saying a pair of
    coordinates. Pretty simple.

    I hope you get lucky in your life and in your healing process. Another advice: after several months, or even a couple of years, you may still feeling some pain in the wrists. You have to check yourself, because after all these months without hand use, some psychossomatic causes may enter the scene. After you have healed, your brain can still think it is not healed.

    What you do in this final stage, is the inverse of the first stage: try to not think too much about it.

  2. Try getting a tendonitis strap for your hand.
    They’re sold at most sporting good stores and some drugstores.
