Thanks for writing to us
These symptoms not seems to be related to menopause. According to your symptoms it looks like there is compression of nerve in cervical [neck area] spine. This leads to radiation of pain in your hand.
Most probable reason for your symptoms could be postural problem .
You may need to take x ray spine to see for severity of nerve compression.
Some medication like methylcobalamine with muscle relaxant and analgesic will help, you can take them consulting your treating doctor.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
