Thanks for wwriting in.
from what you have written, it could be due to repetitive strain injury (RSI). This happens when there is uniterrupted use of hand and fingers causin repeated low intensity stress induced injury.

I dont think there is anything to worry. There are medicines and he can avoid stressful movements at his wrist and finger joints.

Hope this helps.
