Doctor says 'selfie wrist' injuries are on the rise

I'm feeling sad for humanity. "Selfie wrist" is a thing.

According to CBSNewYork, San Francisco doctor Levi Harrison is seeing a rise in an injury caused by "hyper-flexing your wrist inwards to capture the perfect selfie angle."

"Selfie wrist" can reportedly cause numbness and a tingling sensation that people feel in their fingers and wrists.
