A strange thought
Is carpal tunnel syndrome the sore throat of ASL?

Wrist/hand pain, i would say yes. Carpal tunnel, unlike most sore throats, is a chronic condition, so not quite from my point of view, though my brain wants to embrace the concept.

Good Question.

Hmmmm. . .

I think carpal tunnel syndrome is more debilitating to ASL than a sore throat would be to a person who uses their voice. After all a person who has a sore throat can write to communicate, a person who relies on ASL as communication can't write either if he/she has carpal tunnel syndrome.
