Schoolgirl Faces Surgery Over Text Messaging March 23, 2010

Annie Levitz, 16, has lost the feeling in her hands, wears braces on both wrists AND needs pain-killing injections – all because of her love of text messaging.

Levitz has been known to send up to 100 texts a day, and became scared when she began to develop pain.

“I started losing feeling in my hands and they’d go numb,” she explained. “I’d go to pick up dishes and things and they’d just fall out of my hands.”

Now she faces going under the knife to relieve her discomfort.

But has this, at the very least, served as a warning to curb’s Levitz’s addiction?

Hardly.  She wants to trade in her current mobile for an iPhone – as its touchscreen would make it easier to type out texts.

Sigh…
