Hello everyone,

I am new to this forum and I need some advice. I developed a cyst on my right wrist from typing, that's all I do at work. The pain started after I accepted a new job which is starting next week. Meanwhile I went to the doctor and he gave me a cortisone shot for the cyst but my hand still hurts when I type. I have been off work on PTO for about 10 days now. I am not sure how my hand will react when I go to my new job.

Should I file with my current employer, or wait and see what happens to my hand when I start the new job? Would that make it more difficult to get approved? My current employer is aware of this injury obviously.

I really want to start the new job as it is a great opportunity for me but I'm worried about what will happen if my hand gets worse.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
