Annie Levitz Gets Carpal Tunnel By Sending 4,000 Texts Per Month

Annie Levitz is a 16 year old that lives near Chicago, Illinois that sent on average about 100 text messages per day.  She has been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome because of the addiction.   It started with shooting pains and numb sensations in her hands.  This led to the inability to grasp objects.  “Enough dishes were broken that my parents and I really started to notice and decided to see a doctor.”  If you send close to 100 text messages like Levitz does, then you’d better slowdown.
