Your symptoms seem to be related to carpal tunnel syndrome. I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the pain. I also suggest cold compresses for relieve. If the symptoms continue, surgery is recommended.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.
