Eyes Sep 19, 2018

When they start to burn or water, then I've been on the computer too long. Yes, even after the generous administration of eye drops.

Neck Sep 19, 2018

The sides of my neck are the first to complain that I've been sitting in front of the computer for too long!

Back, fingers alternately Sep 19, 2018

Sometimes this, sometimes the others are complaining. The fingers more frequently but if I don't watch out for the back, it can down me unexpectedly for a longer period any time. Goes back a long way...

My legs Sep 19, 2018

I get swollen legs– especially in the heat – when I sit for too long…

My neck Sep 19, 2018

However, after getting a pair of glasses for computer use - for near and intermediate distance viewing only - my neck is less of a problem. Those old enough to need multifocals will understand why...

My ass. Over the years it's been a good indicator for telling me it's time to go for a short walk and come back.

my neck! Sep 19, 2018

My neck feels as if it's about to drop off!

Other Sep 19, 2018

Shoulders, neck and upper back, due to my perennial bad posture. My wrists too, although using Dragon to dictate means I'm typing less, which takes some of the strain off them.

As Chris said Sep 19, 2018

I know I've been working too long without a break when I discover it's time for a pee-pause - RIGHT NOW!

Wrists and legs Sep 19, 2018

I was about to write eyes but actually, the first part of my body that warns me is my legs.

I fell them swelling and I feel I need to stand up and go for a walk just for a few minutes.
Often, my wrist bothers me as well. In that case, I have been at the computer from an even longer time.

My back Sep 19, 2018

My back always tells me to take a break after two or three hours. I always obey the command.

My brain Sep 19, 2018

When I start to struggle with apparently simple sentences and my typing is full of mistakes, a dose of fresh air and some exercise usually fixes the problem.

My head (my eyes?) Sep 20, 2018

The first symptom is a headache. But it's surely caused by my eyes, so I don't know what the correct answer would be.
