    I think you might have Carpal Tunnel syndrome, as many people using  computers have.  Basically you use a certain group of muscles so much for too long that it gets aggravated.


    Your doctor can prescribe something to fix this.  In the mean time, give the right hand a rest.

    Type in "Carpel Tunnel" under Search on the top of this page. You'll see a few questions and answers regarding this subject.

    My sister has the same symptom and has just been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. I hope that is not the case for you.
