See your doctor: Your symptoms could be due to any number of things, from carpal tunnel syndrome to tendonitis, a nerve problem or maybe even a temporary pain from bad arm positioning during sleep. Many other possibilities. See your regular doctor who can ask you more questions and examine your muscles and nerves. Your doc should be able to determine if you need to see a specialist, and if so, which kind.
