Brief Answer:
Could be carpal tunnel syndrome

Detailed Answer:
Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon
In my opinion the numbness in three fingers of your right hand is due to compression on one of the nerves in wrist or upper limb and you need a nerve conduction velocity test.
In the meantime you can take pain killers and pregabalin.
Hope to discuss with you after the test.
