I started playing RS again a week and a half ago.

 

After two+ years or barely gaming I suddenly started playing several hours or more per day. 

A couple of days ago my elbow started hurting, at first I didn't know what it was.. but for some reason I just decided to google RSI and guess what. Pictures show the exact same spot where it hurts for me..

Has any of you experienced this? What have you done about it and how long did it bother you?

Don't know about in terms of gaming, but my music teacher said if I had any pain that I suspected was from RSI to take a week break from playing (in your case gaming) and see if the pain improves. Make sure you're sat in a good position too: knees, bum and elbows should all roughly be at a 90 degree angle and your wrists should be straight.

Same as tennis elbow. Best way of getting rid of it is to rest it.

Thanks for the quick replies guys!

Also, I did use a chair that made me sit different then usual, switching back to my oldone now so my arm rests on my desk again :)

You have been proved to be retarded. Learn to game without pain. If it hurts - double the gaming hours.

I was thinking about slowly building it up so I get back to my old stamina. Where I could last many hours in a row and pleasure you all with my awesomeness.

Meh when I got back into playing OSRS hard again I had some pain in my mouse arm, went away with some time off. I also bought an ergonomic mouse which helped quite a bit actually. Improving your sitting posture while you're playing can help as well.

I got that problem when i was playing Diablo 3 for a while seriously. it never really got away for a year now. Doctor said rest is pretty much it. but it can take VEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERY long.
