What would cause my hands to feel tingly nearly all day? I'm 25. Spent a lot of time on the computer, but they were still tingling hours after.

Over use Syndrome: The repetitive motion of being on a keyboard can at times lead to nerve damage or nerve impingement in your wrists. This tingling means you are most likely overdoing it and need rest or to change up the way you work on your keyboard. If you persist in not solving this problem you may get carpal tunnel and need surgery.
