Sounds like you may have carpal tunnel syndrome. You should be taking a break from your computer to stretch at least every 30 minutes. You can also wear a wrist brace at night while you sleep (that helps a lot). If the pain continues tell your Dr you need to get a scan of your wrist to make sure it is carpal tunnel. You can go through physical therapy or get a surgery done to fix the problem (assuming it is carpal tunnel).
