Repetitive use: A lot of this depends on what kind of work you are doing. Repetitive strenuous use of the hands for prolonged periods of time can cause symptoms similar to these. Conditions such as overuse syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome and tendinitis can all be caused by this type of work.

Use: Hard or repetitive use makes joints and tendons hurt. Try to cut back on hard use, increase rest time, Ibuprofen are some ways to help this. If things are really bad beyond that, then certainly have it looked at.

Ergonomics: You may be developing carpal tunnel syndrome. Make sure you keep your wrists straight while typing and have a soft gel cushion to rest them lightly upon. If the problem persists despite these measures see your physician for treatment.
