Not usually: This sounds like you may have a trigger finger or related tendinitis of the finger. This can be seen with carpal tunnel, but it is hard to say exactly what the cause - effect is. I would try a cortisone shot for a trigger finger. I bet that helps.

No: Time to get that checked out. Hard to say what is wrong without an exam. It may not be related to the cts.
