bilaterial wrist and ankle pain (mild)

Good evening.

I would like any thoughts impressions on this:

Onset: 1.5 weeks ago

I have been experienceing mild but consistent bilateral wrist pain, primarily ulnar (outside) region, with some radiation to the pad of the thumb and top of hand.  Symptoms range between feeling "tight" and cramping.  Movement and strength seem unaffected (I had a few moments of tingling and pinky finger weakness in my right hand, but not at night).  Aside from that no nighttime tingling or weakness.  No "clicking" that I can detect, and range of motion seems unaffected.  Symptoms worsen when typing.  

I also have very mild but consistent aching of the outside region of both ankles, although again does not prevent movement or restrict activities.  I am a jogger, so some occaisional ankle soreness happens, and goes away if I take a couple days off.  Just curious it's in same basic location as the wrist pain.

I type ALOT (job requires).  Trying to restrict somewhat.  Typing action definately makes symptoms worse, but symptoms are present even when not typing.  I have also been wearing soft wrists supports, and occaisionally wrist braces, which seem to help somewhat.

I've never had wrist problems before...I am suspicious that both wrists started experiencing pain at same time. Given the lack of tingling/nighttime paralysis, and quick bilateral onset I am guessing it's not carpal tunnel?  

Pretty quick onset (nothing to current level within 3 days).  May have been a little better last 2 days, but not much.  

Any thoughts?

I am also having the same pain in both wrist and the front side of my ankles, It is strange to have this pain at the same time and I am a little worried.
I am not having any numbness,just the pain
