Your symptoms point to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome(CTS). It occurs due to compression of the Median Nerve
in the carpal tunnel.
CTS can also present as Pain or discomfort confined to the wrist alone or the entire hand although commonly the three median fingers are involved.It is usually made worse by actions involving repeated flexion, extension at the wrist like typing and also actions like turning a knob, wringing clothes etc.
Please consult a Neurologist
who will do a Nerve Conduction Study
to ascertain the severity of your symptoms.Your symptoms are likely to improve with medical treatment although surgery might be necessary at a later date if symptoms get worse. You can also try Wrist Splinting especially at night which improves symptoms to an extent. If CTS gets severe it can lead to wasting of thenar eminence and weakness of thumb abduction and opposition. You can discuss these concerns with your doctor who will advise you regarding need for surgery.
Hope this helps.
