Carpal tunnel syndrome
is a progressive disease in which there is irritation or compression of the median nerve
that passes through this canal. Characteristic symptoms include numbness, pain and weakness of the hand affecting predominantly in the thumb, index finger, middle finger and or ring finger and not in the small finger. It results due to various reasons some of which include; repeated use of wrist, diabetes
, trauma, athritis etc. Treatment options include resting the hand, steroid infiltration, and in extreme cases surgery.
It could also be possible that you have a dactylitis
which is inflammation of a finger since you did mention it was only the ring finger involve. This could be of infectious or traumatic or of other origin.
What you should do is to meet your doctor for electrophysiology tests to rule or confirm the carpal tunnel syndrome and for other tests like x-ray, complete blood count
Best regards and hope this helps you.
