I am an accountant and usually use my middle right hand finger when using the calculator or computer to type numbers. This past week I had to type in over 3000 entries on a spreadsheet and it took over 4 days. This is very unusual for my job. This past weekend my right hand felt stiff and a bit tingly. I have no pain at night and am back to my normal schedule of limited data entry. My question is could I have damaged my hand in one week to cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Can I do anything to ease any damage I did.
