Yes you can get carpal tunnel syndrome from using your computer mouse too much.

I got carpal tunnel syndrome as a result of the use of my computer mouse for too long.

Whenever you're not using your computer mouse you should let go and wrest your hands on your lap if you're not using the keyboard.

Using a keyboard too much can also cause carpal tunnel syndrome so it's important to get up from the computer and stop typing for at least a 30 minute break in between and stretch your hands and arms out and move your hands around to help relieve the pain.
