I taught dance for 25 years and worked as a Technical Analyst. The work stations at my analyst job were not ergonomically correct. My job was to set up channel lines that involved hours of keyboarding. In 2001, after years of doing this, my hands began to go numb. The numbness began traveling up my arms. I had informed my boss of the pain I was experiencing. Later, I was fired for not being able to come into work because my car broke down.
