In brief: No

Pain to the wrist due to typing is not normal.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common "repetitive motion injury" due to a tendinitis in the wrist. Possible remedies include improved ergonomics of the work station, wrist splints, ice, anti-inflammatory medications and rest. See your doctor to confirm your diagnosis and to implement a treatment plan.
