No: Carpal tunnel pain is usually an electrical shock or shooting pain in the hand from movement in the wrist. One of the tests is to tap on the wrist to elicit the pain. Elbow pain may be from a tendonitis or bursitis, for example. Wrist pain can be from several causes too including strain. However, one does not get elbow pain with carpal tunnel syndrome.
