Shocking Medical Conditions Caused By VIDEO Gaming:::::::::::::::::::::::: by icebeatz: 1:01am On Dec 28, 2012
For all you gamers, God don catch una.

1: Play Station Thumb
The name sounds shocking enough... do i really need to go into details?
Despite the name, this condition can affect anyone who uses a game with d-pad controller. Symptoms of this condition includes numbness to the thumbs, and large open blisters which would take a while to heal. This condition is quite painful and its also known as "palmar hidradenitis".
Any real gamer must should have experienced this condition.... maybe not as extreme as the one described above but equally painful (especially the blisters)....

2. NINTENDINITIS, WIIITIS, AND X-BOXITIS
"Nintendonitis" has been used to describe tendon injuries (tendinosis) of the hands and wrists. Users have reported stress injuries from playing games such as Wii Sports for too long. Serious injuries caused by playing in tight spaces can also occur.
The Wii balance board causes a lot of injuries by itself, including knee and hip problems and fractures resulting from a fall, dubbed "Wii fractures" by health care providers.

3: SEIZURES
Playing video games can, in rare cases, trigger seizures, but there is no scientific evidence that video games can cause traditionally-classified epilepsy. Photosensitive epilepsy (PSE), however, is a common form of epilepsy in which seizures are triggered by visual stimuli that form patterns in time or space, such as flashing lights, bold, regular patterns, or regular moving patterns. Una dey hear??

4: Addiction
Yes, you can get addicted to playing video games. Video game addiction is an impulse control disorder, similar to compulsive gambling. Symptons include weight loss or gain, lack of personal hygiene, lowered social interaction and a disrupted sleep pattern.

5: THE TETRIS EFFECT/GAME TRANSFER PHENOMENA
This phenomenon can occur after playing any game for a long time, but Tetris is the most common culprit. Users say that after playing the game for many hours, they unintentionally transfer elements of the game content, or the interface, into their everyday lives. For instance, users may start to see falling blocks everywhere, or may start to fantasize about which Tetris blocks would fit into a city skyline. Sometimes the images take over sufferer's thought processes, mental imagery, and dreams.

In extreme cases, people have reported having car accidents because they were busy focusing on falling blocks that were not really there.
