Text messaging can be hazardous to your health, that's according to the American College of Emergency Physicians.
Emergency physicians warn that people who love to send text messages are like sleepwalkers: a danger to themselves and they may not even know it.
Chris Dallin, director of public relations at McKay-Dee Hospital says, "Folks are running into things, falling down stairs, falling off curbs, hurting their ankles, breaking bones."
He says he's even seen patients coming in complaining of sore thumbs. He adds text messaging is one multitasking habit you might want to try when you can sit down and can actually see what's around you.
