In brief: Stress on the joint
Your technique and work space may need some adjustment, try to find ergonomic furniture, such as your desk and chair as well as your electronic equipment like the keyboard.
You might want to try wearing wrist splints while typing and see if that helps. Taking a break every 2 hours would probably also be helpful. If it doesn't get better see your family physician or orthopedist.
