2 much txt msgng bad 4 U

SMS poetry enthusiasts be cautioned. Italian doctors think (what we have all known for a very long time) that excessive text messaging may be bad for your fingers.

CNN reports:
A 13-year-old girl in the northern Italian city of Savona needed treatment from an orthopaedic specialist after typing at least 100 short message services (SMSs) a day.

She was prescribed anti-inflammatory medicine and ordered to rest her hands.

Cell phone addicts, stop b4 its 2 l8.

I wonder if we are going to see the equivalent of the carpal tunnel syndrome for cell phones.
