Brief Answer:
Could be carpal tunnel syndrome

Detailed Answer:
Hi there.

Thanks for the query.

It is possible that you have Carpal tunnel syndrome.

This can occur due to repetitive activities involving the hands and wrists as in Golfing, Keyboarding etc.

It is advisable to avoid such activities for 2 weeks and get Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) study done to confirm.

Apply warm packs to the affected region and wrists. You can take Tablet Pregabalin 75mg and Methylcobalamin combination Medicine once at night for a month to help you tide over the symptoms. This is a prescription drug so you need to consult your Hand surgeon or Neurologist in this regard.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

Regards,

Dr. Aashish Raghu
