In brief: Very common
Carpal tunnel syndrome (cts) is an entrapment median neuropathy, causing parenthesis, pain, numbness, and other symptoms in the distribution of the median nerve due to its compression at the wrist in the carpal tunnel.
People who do work with air gun air tool, computer work any work repetitive\ in nature could cause it. Good luck, thanks.

In brief: Not terribly common
It depends on the job as well as your anatomy.
It is one of the most commonly reported peripheral nerve compression syndromes yet it does not effect the vast majority of the public.
