Anyways, all this mousing with my right hand has caused carpal tunnel (however its spelled). My right hand feels like it is on fire all day long.
I need to use a computer for my living, so please pray the pain subsides.
In the meantime i have switched to my left hand but it feels awkward.
Thank you in advance.

Have you been diagnosed with carpal tunnel? That is a very specific condition that has to be diagnosed by a physician. Tendonitis is far more common. If it is tendonitis, rest and a bit of ibuprofin or a similar anti-inflamatory medication would be recommended. You could also try to ice it, 15 mins at a time max.
Of course I will also pray for you, but the Lord does not mind us being practical and taking care of ourselves as well.
YOu might also want to get one of those stationary mouses with the thumb ball. They are awkward, but they will allow you to switch up devices and rotate the tissues getting the most use.
