In brief: Yes

Yes, the wrist band can aggravate carpal tunnel or circulation to the hand, but not likely if the band is removed every few hours.
The acupuncture point on the inside wrist is master of the heart 6, which when stimulated will greatly reduce nausea from almost any cause, especially morning sickness.

In brief: Yes

Yes, but it really has be worn pretty tightly for it to cut off the circulation.
I haven't seen it cause carpal tunnel symptoms, but then again, i don't really see many people wear these bands.
