In brief: Usually a splint

Initial conservative care for cts is a wrist splint.
I would advise an evaluation by a hand surgeon . If you are having continuous symptoms of numbness and tingling you need to seed a hand surgeon asap.

In brief: Non-op @ 1st

Carpal tunnel syndrome (cts) is due to compression of the median nerve at the wrist.
Treatment consist of splints, oral/injectable steroids and/or therapy. If symptoms persist after treatment, surgery can provide permanate relief of pain, numbness and tingling. Both open and endoscopic techniques are available. See a board certified orthopaedic hand surgeon for treatment options.

In brief: Splinting

First you need to confirm your diagnosis, either EMG or mri.
You can start simple but effective therapy immediately, stop doing whatever repetitive movement that caused your symptoms. A cock-up splint for your wrist will put the median nerve in neurtal position, wear it continuously except for bathing for 6 wks., then only during the day for 4->6 wks. Symptoms should resolve. You must confirm dx.
