What are symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome?

Do I have carpal tunnel syndrome?
Last night, I was doing my friendMs hair, and all of a sudden the tip of my right index finger started to feel like it was falling asleep. I ignored it for a while, thinking it would of course go away if it was asleep. But an hour later, it was still there. It felt as if it were falling asleep, but with more of a tingling feeling. My right index finger is the only place on both hands that is having this issue. My parents think I may have carpal tunnel because of teen texting.

yes your symptoms shows there is a compression of medial nerve but we can't conclude whether it's compressing on the wrist or neck area. we can decide it only with a physical evaluation..
