In brief: Yes
Carpal tunnel syndrome (cts) is a very very common disorder. It is more common in people who are active in certain occupations, etc.
Sometimes the symptoms will persist, even after the offending activity is stopped. Some people have cts for no apparent reason. The treatment of cts depends on the severity of the compression, and on the severity of your symptoms.
