Stinging wrist when applying pressure. Should I look into cause?

My wrist will have a sharp sting to it whenever i put pressure on it. For example i can feel the sting when i wash my hair and when i just put my hand on my hip. the pain is primarily branching from the wrist to the center. i feel the pain more on the bottom of my palm than top and it s fairly centered. i felt this pain about 7-9 months ago and it went away after maybe a month. is it something i should look into cause this is the 3rd time its flared up again.

Do you have following symptoms-
Clumsiness of the hand when gripping objects
Numbness or tingling in the thumb and next two or three fingers of one or both hands
Numbness or tingling of the palm of the hand
Pain in the wrist or hand in one or both hands
Problems with fine finger movements (coordination) in one or both hands
Weak grip or difficulty carrying bags (a common complaint)

if any one is yes then go to an ORTHOPAEDIC, because it may be CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME causing nerve compression.
