Hello Annamarie,

I have had tendonitis in my wrist several times, rather than carpal
tunnel, but I think some of what I have learned may help you. My employer
bought an ergonomic keyboard that I place on my lap and a mouse that has a
larger palm support (I may buy my own keyboard and mouse if I have further
problems). When I feel my wrist muscles under strain I wear a knitted cuff
on my wrist to keep the muscles warm (warm muscles are less prone to
strain). I also practice tai chi, do stretches in the morning, and wrist,
shoulder and back stretches during the day.

I hope this helps.
