I think I messed up my elbow this time.
I keep doing this. When I had a 20 day break from work during Skyrim's release, I started slowly, but then got sucked into it hard and clocked around 120 hours in 13 days. I think I played 14+ hours a day the last three days and had to decide enough is enough and quit.
I have been playing games very little since then to accoodate my aging body. When I played Witcher 3 last year, I consciously tried to limit my game time for a while but the game was too good, far better than any RPG I have ever played, and I started playing 8+ hours a day. I got pain in my right thumb and right knee and had to dial it down. Both got better in about a week.
Now I rediscovered my hardcore WoW days by playing GW2 pretty seriously this time(first time since release, I had always played this game pretty casually so far), I have been playing regularly for the past 40 days or so, getting my Elementalist geared fully in Ascended armour set, progressing to highest T4 level fractals, failing a lot, learning a lot, downing two of the raid bosses, getting all professions except Thief to 80, gearing all of them in Exotics+Ascended gear, etc.
Three days ago I started playing with my new Logitech g502 mouse which is heavier than my old g402 mouse. Today I woke up with an elbow pain and I don't know if I have been playing too much or if it's the new mouse. I'll cut down my time on playing GW2 and see if the elbow heals in about a week. I'm back to my old mouse for now.
