i dont know if it is or isnt carpel tunnel, all i know is that my wrist hurts. heres whats up... It is on my left hand, it hurts if you trace down your ring finger strait down to your wrist joint. Also, if you trace down your thumb (on the inside twords the palm.) these pain's can be discribed as sharp and last really long. they've lasted up to 5 min. they always come either one or the other, but never two at the same time, and never one fallowing the other. I just realized that it is a frequent thing happening, up to twice a day. As for what i do, i play bass (a righty bass so it would be my fretting hand) i play guitar (also a righty guitar, left is fretting hand) i am left handed, so i write with this hand, and i use the computer a lot (i'm frequently on the key board.) do you think its carpel tunnel? is it possible for somone that is only 15 to get it? i'm seriously freakin, cause i play guitar a lot and you could almost say that if i'm not playing guitar i'm screwing around on the computer.
