There, she was diagnosed with Tenosynovitis, an inflammation of the fluid-filled sheath surrounding a tendon which could have been caused by repeating the same motion day after day.

Fortunately for her, she was able to regain normal movement in her hand after treatment. In a video accompanying the report, the doctor advised her and the general public to moderate their smartphone usage.
