Two new game-related diseases
The two new game-related conditions (coined and discovered by me) are:
GCHS - Gamer's Cold Hand Syndrome
The condition that some gamers experience where prolonged periods of time spent using a controller causes the circulation in the hands to decrease, causing the hands to become "ice cold"
GSHS - Gamer's Sweaty Hand Syndrome
The condition by which the gamer's hands overtense or move too much while using the controller, causing the hand to heat and sweat.
Prognosis: There is no cure. Even if you cease playing video games, the condition still tends to remain. Further long-term studies must be completed.
Notes: From personal experience, GCHS tends to follow GSHS. Perhaps this is because the gamer in question at first over compensates and over grips due to nervousness or anxiety. Eventually, the gamer will calm down and refine techniques allowing for minmum movement of the hand, causing GCHS.
If anyone else can contribute, it would lend a lot of help to the study!
This is all a goof on something I noticed after playing my Dreamcast for six hours at a stretch, this is not to be taken as an actual medica report.
