Hello,

The pain in the hand is usually related to tunnel carpal syndrome. Thus diagnosis is usually treated through anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms. If the pain continue,surgery is recommended. I suggest to consult an orthopedist for further evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
