In brief: No

Carpal tunnel is when the median nerve gets pinched at the level of the wrist.
The median nerve gives sensation to the thumb, index, middle, and half of the ring finger and these are the digits that develop the pain/numbness/tingling seen with class carpal tunnel. The small finger tends to be without symptoms with carpal tunnel -.

In brief: Tingling

Carpal tunnel typically causes tinging not pain in all the fingers except the little.
If you are having pain it could be from a trigger finger?
