In brief: Carpal tunnel?

You may possibly having carpal tunnel which is quite common in folks using their hands repetitively such as typing etc.
..Over-use arthritis can also be causing symptoms..I would recommend seeing your doc for an evaluation to determine a best solution for your. Try some motrin/aleve, vitamin b6, and wrist splint in the meantime..Good luck.
