In brief: CTS

Perhaps, but prove that you caused it and not from something else it.
.Thus the problem need a huge randomized blinded study or huge multifactorial longitudinal study to figure it out. Most musicians have a ong history of proper mechanics and posture and don't typically cause carpal tunnel, just happen to get it like everyone else. We all use our hands. Thus hand activity of one type is common.

In brief: Yes

Carpal tunnel can often occur after repetitive stress such as would be seen with frequent using of a computer keyboard or lengthy piano playing.
