Wrist, elbow, shoulder?
If you're happy and nothing hurts, there's no need to change, though it can be useful to experiment.
I started with zero feather, years later went to a very mild (15 degree) feather for a year, and at the beginning of the following year made my choice based on which way felt more natural after taking the winter off. Back to zero feather it was. I was able to quickly adapt when I switched both to and from the 15 degrees, which is not a drastic amount. Also, I got my "other side" roll while using feathered; when I switched back to zero feather I still had it. Don't make it more complicated than it is: what feels best?
P.S.--During the year I paddled using 15 degree of feather, I tried going to 30 degrees and hated it. YMMV.
