After a bit of typing tests, take a break for your own sake. Drop down and do twenty push ups. Stretch for a while. Read something, anything. Carpal tunnel syndrome may be rare, but it's not impossible to acquire. Also, the most common cause of it is typing.

A quick paste from webmd:

It's a common belief that frequent typing can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. But it's actually three times more common among assembly line workers than it is among data-entry personnel -- and frequent use of vibrating hand tools increases the risk. In contrast, one study found that even heavy computer use -- up to seven hours a day -- did not make people more likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

I have also heard that bike riding can cause this too, the vibration in the handle bars being much like the tools mentioned above.
