the difference between arthritis and carpal tunnel?

How do I tell the difference between arthritis and carpal tunnel? I was diagnosed with CTS years ago and have been careful not to spend too much time on the computer since but I now am having unusual pain in my left hand -- not the one I use with a mouse. My mother has had arthritis in her fingers for years. Are there exercises I should be doing or things I should avoid? It hurts most when I do things like carry a heavy bag of groceries.
