Carpel tunnel?: You may have what we call carpel tunnel syndrome when the nerve is compressed by inflammation or anatomical structure. The rising use of the hand on the keyboard or mouse with the computer may contribute to this problem. Try to modify your hand position and even try a wrist sprint If not helpful, time to see doctor.
