Thanks for asking me to respond. Wrist pain following continuous typing could be a result of Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI). Ideally am examination is required of you suffer from RSI or something rise. There are other common conditions that can cause wrist pain at your age. For the moment I suggest that you take a 5 minutes break every hour to stretch your fingers and wrist. Get up from your table and get a coffee or talk to your colleague. If pain persists beyond a week consult a local ortho doctor. I cannot prescribe meds as Practo prohibits me from doing so. Good luck!
