I've found a small wrist rest to be a quick and inexpensive cure.
You can purchase a "mini wrist pad" at just about any computer/
office supply store for about $5 -- or by a mouse pad with the
wrist rest built in for a few bucks more. The raised pad keeps
your wrist straight and supported and you can't dig the heel of
your hand into the desktop until it turns red anymore!

And, believe it or not, a bottle of vitamin B6! Doctors are now
using B6 successfully to alleviate CTS symptoms.
