The only time I have gotten carpal tunnel symptoms is when I had to purl a lot, or when the needles I was using made the yarn drag and I had to exert a lot of pressure. You could try different ways of knitting, like switching to continental, etc, avoiding certain stitches, stretching and not working too long at a time.
