The most common cause is impingement at the wrist
In which case it is called carpal tunnel syndrome
is it serious ?
But your case does not seem serious
It seems like a short-lived condition
I would advise you to avoid repetitive movements of the left hand
Sorry but the language used by you is very technical
I will explain a little
do i need to see doctor
The nerves that supply the hand pass through the wrist
Yes you can see an orthopedic surgeon for the diagnosis
The treatment is usually rest to the wrist
If it is low you will need B12 supplements
If it does not get better than the doctor may ask you to wear a splint
It is not serious
Are you there?
