Candy Crush Obsession Leads to Torn Tendon and Suppressed Pain
San Diego doctors performed surgery on a man suffering from a torn tendon in his left hand from playing Candy Crush Saga for nearly two months straight. The man complained of "chronic left thump pain and loss of active motion" after playing the app all day for 6 to 8 weeks. Apparently the patient did not immediately notice the pain of the tear because of the "visual distraction" and pleasure of playing Candy Crush.
