Anytime you have sustained pain, SEE A DOCTOR. Pain is a signal, since body tissues can't talk any other way. You may well have carpal tunnel syndrome, or a milder, more acute inflammation. Do any painkillers (Advil, Tylenol, etc.) help? Your hands are your most important tools, ShowringChef. Don't neglect them any more than would your knives.
