-====== ​R S I of the Tongue ======+====== ​RSI of the Tongue ====== 
 + 
 +by Dr. Mac* 
 + 
 +I was pleased to read last month my colleague'​s report on avoiding RSI of the foot. Here 1 would like to deal with the more serious problem of RSI of the tongue. This malady is caused by both the quantity and 
 +quality or extent of the activity to which the organ is subjected; for quantity equate repetitive (ie R), for quality equate the stress level,ie S. Together R S lead to the injury (I), thus does RSI develop. 
 + 
 +There are two major causes of tongue RSI, namely eating and talking. Toffee-like,​ high viscosity and/or tough high tenacity food requiring prolonged mastication (note spelling) can cause high levels of repetitive stress. Obviously a change in diet is the cure here. A liquid diet is to be recommended. A note of caution here; some liquid diets can cause ETRSI (see below). For serious walkers freeze dried egg nog, dehydrated porridge and slaked saos are excellent dishes. 
 + 
 +The other cause of tongue RSI is excessive talking sometimes, and incorrectly,​ referred to as verbal diarrhoea (this will be covered in a later report). Excessive talking RSI, normally referred to as ETRSI, is caused by galloping monosyllablism either alone or compounded with polysyllablism. ETRSI is a difficult problem to cure. Counselling and psychiatric help to reduce the vocabulary have had success in about 57% 
 +of the known cases. Support of persons afflicted with ETRSI can be given by semisyllabic responses to the ET syndrome. 
 + 
 +Relief to sufferers can be achieved by firmly binding the lower to the upper jaw with the standard 70mm crepe bandage. Should a bandage not be available then band-aids may be applied to seal the lips. RSI of the tongue may not be immediately recognised by the afflicted side effects, however, do manifest themselves in companions, namely a buzzing or ringing in the ears.
