Yes: It could be carpal tunnel syndrome or other nerve compression problem in addition to early arthrtitis with the morning stiffness. I think a visit to your doc would be very benificial.

Doctor can evaluate: That's an odd-sounding symptom. One can see his primary care doctor, who may refer to a neurologist, to see what all the details are, and to look for a cause. One should write down the symptoms on a calendar, including when they happen, how long they last, what activities were done, what foods/drinks eaten, any meds/drugs used, etc...

Nerve Compression: Loss of feeling in the hands is usually caused by a compressed nerve in the arm/hand/wrist. These are known as compressive neuropathies. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common one. Key questions to ask are the following: what part of the hand is going numb? When does it occur? Do you have weakness?
