Does your wrist ever hurt after taking a selfie? You might have "selfie wrist."

Doctors say they are hearing more complaints about pain in the wrist and tingling in the fingers.

They believe the discomfort could be related to a selfie-obsessed culture.

Dr. Levi Harrison says it's a form of carpal tunnel.

Harrison says people show take selfies without bending their wrists. Daily exercise may also help.
