I type 8 to 10 hours a day as a transcriptionist. I have had carpal tunnel and tenosynovitis. I use Voltaren cream, it is available without a prescription. I rub it into my wrists when I feel soreness and it lasts several hours. If you need a stronger one than the one the drug store sells, you can get a prescription for a stronger one from your doctor and they mix it up at the pharmacy. Works great, not systemically absorbed so no ulcer worries with the oral versions of NSAIDs.

Carpal tunnel releases done on both wrists totally eliminated all wrist pain and enabled me to complete my ARCT in Piano - Solo Performance. Although surgery is a scary thing, there is minimal recuperation time (about 10 days). I had the surgery done almost 20 years ago and haven't had a moment of pain since and (obviously) no reduction in the use of my hands.
