In brief: Determine cause

While many of your friends may be quick to diagnose this as carpal tunnel, you should seek evaluation to determine if this needs testing prior to splinting.

In brief: Possibly

You can start there but it would be better to get a firm diagnosis and then you won't mistreat and waist your time.

In brief: Yes

Yes you can wear the splint , but you have to see your physician to find the cause your symptoms, if no injury, most likely you may have carpal tunnel syndrome.
