Sad Corsair K65 WASD Pain

Hi all
I recently a few months ago purchased a K65 RGB for my birthday, and it has been a pain to get used to because I switched from a Razer Deathstalker. I've recently gotten back into gaming and I realised when playing CS for periods of time, my left hand starts getting pins and needles and begins to feel worn out. This happened yesterday after 30-45 minutes of non-stop aim and spray practice, so much that i had to aim without using WASD at all to let my hand rest. I've never had this problem with my Razer Deathstalker, (I used to play Minecraft for 8-12 hours straight, no issues) this is only a problem for me on this new keyboard. I have Cherry Red switches and I used the wrist rest until recently when I was advised to take it off. Hope someone can help because the worn out feeling is more than temporary. Thanks

It sounds like you have the onset of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, probably from doing marathon sessions of games without proper wrist support/breaks. You should definitely take a break from gaming/consult a doctor if your hand is causing you pain/you have fatigue.

It might be worth looking into larger wrist rests if the included one does not work well.
