Numbness : Numbness and tingling of the extremities are typically seen in peripheral neuropathies. Swelling is a typical symptoms of inflammation. Any history of trauma or rheumatic disease? For a better orientation you need to provide more details!
i think the best option at this point is to go talk to your pcp or your family physician.

The : The aching and tingling part would usually suggest some problem starting way up in the neck. However, this would not typically produce hand swelling. A so-called thoracic outlet problem might be also considered but again this is not a classical presentation.
Having said that, given that this is not a typical presentation a visit to the doctor would be suggested.
Best of luck.
