Hi and welcome to HCm!
Thanks for posting your query here.
The symptoms are related with Carpal Tunnel syndrome. This is seen in the people who are working more with computers. Carpal Tunnel is located at the junction of the palm and wrist. A number of structures like tendons of muscles and an important nerve -median nerve passes through it. Because of repetitive movements of the palm from the wrist there will be stress on the median nerve. This causes a pain in the movement of the muscles it is supplying. The other conditions like diabetes, hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis and pregnancy in females will aggravate the condition.
Treatment aims at relieving the stress within the tunnel which consists of wrist rest, using alternative keyboard functions like mouse pad, and taking multivitamins of B complex group. To relieve the pain analgesics may be used. The definitive treatment is releasing the stress on the median nerve. This depends on the extent of the pressure on the nerve.
Please consult an orthopedician who will take an x-ray and confirm the diagnosis.
Hope this is helpful to you.
