In brief: No

Although the symptoms may feel severe and the pain can be debilitating, no one has ever died from carpal tunnel syndrome.
If you have a sudden attack of left upper extremity pain along with chest pain, you should be evaluated immediately for a heart attack and go to an emergency room.
