?carpal tunnel syndr: You probably have acquired a wrist synovitis, maybe through keyboarding, which is causing compression of median nerve at wrist. Recommend you let your doctor know about this, as simple to reverse.

CTS: Likely 2 separate conditions e.G carpal timnel symdrome and arthritis in multiple joints.

Need to see doctor: The bilateral nature of your symptoms is of concern and may point to systemic disease. However, this is not a diagnosis made online. See your doctor.
