Default Oak sticks - bad for your hand?

So I had a 2-hour practice session yesterday... After the session was over, I find it very painful and difficult to use my hands and the pain is still there up until now.

I use a pair of TAMA 5B Traditional Series drumsticks, which are made out of oak. I only move my wrists and lower arms while playing.

I'm not sure whether it's because of the stick or my grip and/or playing technique. I do know that oak sticks don't absorb much shock, so if anyone could somehow figure this out, I would gladly appreciate it.
