    Unfortunately, I have a soreness on the inside of my elbow (like golfer's elbow), and I believe it is caused by playing too much Wii Sports! :ee5k:

    Here is some info on Elbow Tendonitis:

    Question: Does anyone else here suffer from Wii Elbow?

    I had some shoulder pain the first few days i had the wii, but after playing it more the muscles that I guess I hadn't used in awhile got used to the motions and I haven't experienced any soreness since.

    Well maybe sometimes on those hungover mornings after Wii & Booze parties. :devil:

    I think you just have to make sure not to bend over backwards to win if you get the metaphor

    LOL! Yeah, I think that bowling is what did me in. I think I was using too much force swinging my arm, and was trying to put too much spin on the ball. I have now gone to just throwing straight balls from the corner.

    I think time is definitely a factor in my soreness. It is interesting that Wii will remind you to take a break after you have been playing for a while. There is also a health/safety warning right when you turn the system on. I think Nintendo knows that we can get hurt if we play these games non-stop. :crazy:

    I get wii arm after playing the home run/baseball game on super monkey ball banana blitz, played if for about 4 hours late one night with a mate and I was in agony the next day, that was in the early days though before i realised swinging your arm as hard as possible doesn't actually make a difference.

    Im fine. You may need more exercise (no offense) anyone who is even fairly fit shouldnt have problems from the motions of the wiimote.

    Down at my squad we have gotten plenty of wii related calls, most of them were just normal stuff like hitting their hands on glass objects in the room or hitting another person..

    We did have this one case of a guy having really bad back spasms and he had collapsed on the ground from playing Wii Sports Boxing for too long and not stoping to stretch :nonod:
