Seek evaluation: There are some questions that first need to be asked and some exam findings but it may be that you have a focal neuropathy such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Neuropathies can be diagnosed clinically or with the use of a nerve conduction study. Please see your physician. Management initially includes wrist splints and at times medications.
