No: But may have nothing to do with it.

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.
