how long till this heals?
What was the doc's diagnosis?
If it's any kind of regular strain, at your age no more than six weeks -- but you're going to need to lay off the gaming during recovery. (CoD Black Ops is rubbish anyway :-) )
If it really is RSI, it's a much bigger deal and you should be thinking about a hand specialist. And you really must
keep off the gaming for a while. (In fact, if it's RSI you may have to keep off any
activity involving rapid repeated movements of your hand ...
Caveat: I'm a real doctor, not a medical doctor.
