Brief Answer:
Possible carpal tunnel syndrome.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HealthcareMagic.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

In my opinion, carpal tunnel syndrome is a quite possible condition that may cause symptoms like yours.

A nerve conduction study is necessary to confirm or exclude the diagnosis.

If confirmed, surgical decompression of the compressed median nerve at the wrist is necessary.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Feel free to ask further.

Take care.
