What causes numbness and tingling in the hands and fingers?

my hands always for the past 10 years would experience numbness and tingling - it seems to be more frequently during day and wakes me up 1-2 times at night. Sometimes when my fingers go numb...i get extreme pain in my fingers - not sure who to see for this.. i don t know if it is from my neck or carpal tunnel

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
The symptoms seem to be related to carpal tunnel.
A neurological examination is needed to confirm the diagnosis.
Meanwhile you can use anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen in case are needed.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
