wheelchair, etc. I tried using my left arm for a while but that did not work out well. Do other caregivers have this problem of repetitive strain on your right arm and upper-right arm (if you are right-handed)? Is this a common problem for caregivers? Does anyone have any suggestions or tips? My pain is not severe, but it is definitely noticeable. Before I was caregiving for my Mom, I did not do any heavy lifting, and my Mom weighs well over 100 pounds.
