One of her solutions is to get an iPhone, which she can still text on, but it’s a touch screen, requiring less work.

“So u really text that much?”

– “yes i used to send about a hundred text a day but it has slowed down since i got the braces” “But r u cutting back?”

 – “yes the braces make it painful to text as well as it just hurts in general same goes for typing on the computer.”

That’s how a text interview went with Annie Levitz, 16, an Adlai Stevenson High School junior who has been diagnosed with carpel tunnel syndrome because of her texting.

If you have witnessed a teenager text, their speed and dexterity is impressive on the tiny cell phone keyboards. News has spread around school about her condition. “When I walk into science class they say, ‘Carpal Tunnel Girl’,” she said at her home near the Mundelein and Long Grove border. She was sitting on a sofa chair with ugly braces on each wrist. Dr. Sofia Aksentijevich is a rheumatologist, a doctor who specializes in arthritis and related diseases, who diagnosed Levitz with carpal tunnel syndrome. “It’s unusual among younger patients, but not unique,” she said.
