Brief Answer:
Carpal tunnel syndrome

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Thank you for the query.

Your symptoms seem to be caused by carpal tunnel syndrome. Due to medial nerve compression in the wrist area the pain and numbness appears in the first two-three fingers. The pain gets usually worse during the night.
To diagnose it wrist ultrasound and EMG test should be done. Please consult neurologist.
If it will be confirmed simple surgical procedure can help.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards
