As Joules said, just take your hand off it for a while :-D

Have a workshop to play in so you take regular breaks from the computer. The exercise of moving is good for you too....

You have to use a while before getting better.
Now I feel much better...Not perfect but much better

Make sure that your hand runs parallel to the table you are sitting on by setting your armrests correctly. This will help prevent your wrist resting on the table and putting too much weight on it. For most tables this means you might need a stand to raise your monitor or laptop to eye level, as you also want your legs parallel to the floor. Most people set their chairs too low for this, which can cause knee problems.

You need an L shaped desk where a leg of the L is at your mouse side. You rest your complete forearm from elbow to hand on the desk. Like an armrest sort of but part of the desk. This takes all the force/weight of your arm off of your wrist and hand. You can also pad the desk where your arm rests with an oversize mousepad.

Height of chair and desk is important also. Your feet should be flat on the floor and arm comfortable resting on the desk. If your chair/desk combo is too high to have your feet flat on the floor, or if it feels better with your feet up a bit, use a small foot stool.

Duct tape and 3 helium filled balloons . .it will keep your wrist elevated. For any extreme pain, take two Vicodin. If pain persists, see a doctor.
