    Lately i have been practicing alot for long periods, but today i started noticing this weird tingly pain when i bent my pinky/ring/middle fingers at the same time in my right hand. and as the day progressed the tingling has turned to pain/numbness and my hand feels weak, and just a little while ago i started getting sharp pains throughout my arm.

    so im wondering if i may have carpal tunnel?
    thanks for any suggestions or anything

    More likely, its tendonitis.

    600mg or so ibuprofen, 3-6 times a day... for 10 days, you should be alright.

    tendonitis is much less severe... it goes away.
