    If you're asking if repetitive motions can cause elbow and shoulder pain just as they do with wrist pain the answer is yes. Personally I have had problems with shoulder pain, not wrist pain, from using the keyboard and mouse. 

     

    If you're asking if carpel tunnel syndrome can cause elbow and shoulder pain as well - the answer to that is - yes, it can and it's not uncommon. In fact one study showed that about half the people with carpel tunnel syndrome also have shoulder pain.
