Do you have pain in the thumb and little finger? Does your elbow hurt too?
The thumb usually is involved in carpal tunnel as is the little finger. But regardless, everyone is different, and it COULD be carpal tunnel.
Surgery is the only solution for it, and it is VERY VERY EASY. It doesn't take long at all, and it's not painful. I had it done on my left hand. I DID have to wear a brace for about 6 weeks afterwards. But it was no big deal. I could still use my hand, and could still type.
I'm so glad I had it done because it was SO painful!!! If I hadn't had it done, I would have had permanent nerve damage. Now i can type with NO pain at all. It was well worth it. It was also a work-related injury, much to my bosses dismay.
He didn't want to pay the hospital bills, but he ended up having to. LOL Best of luck and God bless. Hugs, Lee
