I strongly recommend getting a copy of "The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook"; it helped when I had the same symptoms, from the same cause (too much typing). Beyond that, look into wrist stretching exercises, take breaks, and don't push it too far.
You really don't want to get tendinitis.... I've had it for the last year and a half, and have had to temporarily abandon my chosen field due to it. Trigger point therapy fixed my numbness and reduced the coldness of my hands, but it works on muscles, not tendons, so it can't fix tendinitis: as far as I know, nothing but time resting can (physiotherapy didn't help much).
Good luck with your typing, and take care of yourself.
