In brief: Let's hope not!

I have not heard of any nerve damage with masturbation, excessive or not.
If so, there would be a lot of young men with carpal tunnel syndrome. In reality, carpal tunnel syndrome is more common in women and usually occurs in people over 40. So, you don't have to worry about your hands.
