Question: Brief Answer:
Carpal tunnel syndrome.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Symptoms and numbness you describe are typical for a condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome, caused by compression of median nerve through its way into the wrist.

It needs surgical decompression, so you need to consult a Neurosurgeon or an Orthopedic surgeon to be treated.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Greetings.
