Doctor: More People Suffering From 'Selfie Wrist'


If you've been taking a lot of selfies with your phone, you could develop selfie wrist.  San Francisco physician, Levi Harrison, says he's seeing more patients complaining of wrist pain.  

Selfie wrist is a type of carpal tunnel syndrome that comes from hyper flexing your wrist or clutching your phone for long periods of time without moving.  Sharp pain, numbness, or even a tingling in the wrist are some symptoms that come with the condition.  

The doctor recommend putting your phone down to rest your hand and apply a cold pack to reduce any swelling to the affected area.
