But the longer answer includes the idea that the same factors that led to tendinitis in your wrist could in fact lead to carpal tunnel. It may also be that you did not have tendonitis in your wrist but had some early pain in your wrist from the very same carpal tunnel. Carpal tunnel can present initially as wrist pain
even without tingling
in fingers. It is characterized at times by aching pain on the palm or volar side of the wrist near the wrist creases. Usually more of a dull throb or ache rather than a sharp pain.
Regardless of the route or cause you should seek medical attention in your own area from your own doctor if you feel you might have carpal tunnel.
