Turns out candy is not just bad for your health but could also lead to a damaged tendon on your thumb. Who would have thought?
A 29 year old man who had obsessively been playing candy crush “all day for 6 to 8 weeks” had to go to hospital after he begun to suffer from chronic pain on his left thumb.
The right handed man had dedicated his left hand to playing the game which requires you to match three or more candies while meeting various challenges in order to successfully move to the next stage.
His clinical diagnosis was “rupture of the left extensor pollicis longus tendon” and he had to undergo surgery to correct it.
