In brief: Carpal tunnel
Check the ergonomics of your workstation.
Your wrist needs to be unbet and parallell to the floor when typing. Increase b-vitamin intake. Anti-inflammatories of cats claw and ganoderma are very helpful. Failing these you will need to see a doctor for steroid injections into the wrist and possibly surgery. Email me for details www.Medacpc.Com.
