Get rid of the mouse pad with a cushion. Align your chair so you’re sitting at the right height. YouTube has videos on it.

^i had the same issue, my PT told me to throw out my cushion

Make sure your elbow is elevated higher than your wrist when using a mouse

Wrist brace. Wear it tighter during the day and loose at night for a few weeks till the pain subsides. Also be mindful of ways you use your wrists. Maybe you knead a lot of bread for example? I tend to crush mine under my chin when sleeping. Drop the wrist pad and get a vertical ergonomic mouse, the kind that has your hand facing sideways like you were gonna give someone a handshake.

Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.
