Age 62, MT for 30. At age ~58, started having a broken-glass sensation between distal and middle phalanges of 3 fingers, exquisitely tender & swollen. I had to try to type without bending my fingers. It would usually last a few days and then gradually diminish. Cold/hot water, ice, heating pads -- none of these seemed to make a difference.

I tried all my life to avoid hitting my keyboard with force, hoping to avoid this. Interestingly, the newer soft-touch keyboards cause me to slam each key for its full depth because I can't get a distinct feeling of having hit it. I could fly over the old IBM clicky-keys while barely touching them.
