Muscle Aches and Repetitive Actions?

I've been wondering if these things are linked with Acromegaly. I never used to have muscle aches before and it seems that my muscles are very sensitive to repetitive actions now. I don't read as often as I used to because I think it was causing my muscles in my shoulder and neck to tense up, resulting in headaches. I realized my headaches were always on the left side, and I always read by holding the book with my left hand. I'm a very avid reader so I could read for hours at a time, day after day. Since I've stopped reading as much I notice my muscles don't hurt as much, and I have headaches less often. Maybe I'm grasping at straws again. Just wondering if anyone else can attribute their muscle aches/headaches to repetitive actions, that wouldn't cause problems in someone without Acromegaly.

I had the same problem for years and cut way down on the number of books I read as a result. If you haven't tried an ebook reader I would recommend it. I use an iPhone and use Kindle for iPhone to download books from Amazon. It's so much more comfortable. I've had the iPhone since march and have read 18 books since then. I can read in bed comfortably for the first time in many years.
