    I'm Typing At 80+ Wpm However...

    My hand will hurt, if I write anything down manually.  I don't understand.  This could be a problem.  Even when, I often wrote things down manually, my hand always hurt, after a sentence or two.  I'm ambidextrous and the problem happens with both of my hands...

    Lets Just Say

    Don't know how good you accept my comment,

    but yes am more comfortable typing too, as well writing, but sometimes a long script can pain my fingers that does not deliver the quality neat hand writing. I don't claim though any related symptoms, but happy to claim today that early learning from tender ages, and a fond...
