Repetitive Strain Injury?

I work with a computer for much of the day and am getting lingering numbness and pins and needles in my right hand, which I use to operate the mouse as well as typing of course.

I have asked work to supply me with wrist rests. The rest of my desk seems ok, I have a good back supporting chair and a foot rest, and everything seems to be at the right height. Is there anything else I can be doing to prevent symptoms getting worse? It is likely to be RSI or something else?

It's quite minor obviously at the moment but I've heard RSI can be quite debilitating when severe so am keen to stop it now before it gets worse.
