Seconded the recommendation to address the root of the problem (typing
habits, they keyboard you're using, etc.)  While you're doing that,
there are some things you can do to reduce the pain in your wrists.
First, take ibuprofen.  It's an anti-inflammatory drug + pain
reliever.  Ice your wrists twice a day - at lunch and after you get
home should be good, since they'll probably be inflamed then.  And, as
others suggested, start doing regular stretching (not right after
you've iced them, though) to stretch the tendons in your wrist and
forearms.
