    I wouldn't suggest doing anything until you see your doctor. This could be something serious. You don't want to make it worse.

    For now, until you can get to the doctor, I'd buy a wrist brace. They're relatively cheap and can be found in most pharmacies. This will keep your wrist from moving and doing more damage.

    An ice pack is also a good idea, after work.

    See your doctor and let us know how it goes. :)

    You probably need to see your doctor if the pain continues.

    It's more than likely either carpal tunnel syndrome or tendinitis of the wrist, but it takes specialized testing to make that determination.

    The wrist brace that Altenweg suggested is excellent advice.
