As a quick note from one who had the problem with 2D CAD in the mid
80s I'll just say that I did the following which eventually worked:
1. Lower the keyboard & mousing &/or table area down as close over my
knees as I could.
2. Used a low height mouse (as small as I could get) or trackpad
3. Learn to do the mouse/trackpad movements with almost no tension or
hard force on buttons &/or trackpad to ease the tendency to have
continually tense muscles & tendons.
4. Chose an off-duty hobby that gives some independent hand wrist
activity each day, that is quite varied; rowing, basketball & swimming
come to mind.
5. Take breaks every hour or two and do some form of hand stretching
& relaxation at least.
I remember times "back then" when I would sit down after lunch and not
look up from the screen until 5pm and wonder where the time went, and
eventually realized it was partially behind my wrist pain.
