Carpal tunnel : It does sound like carpal tunnel syndrome. Just check exactly which fingers go numb, ( usually index, middle and ring finger). You should then see the doctor for help, who's may uses wrist braces, or refer for an op to release the carpal tunnel

Carpal tunnel : syndrome likely. See neurilogist and wear wrist splint in the interim

You should: See your physician as this could be due to carpal tunnel syndrome. Your physician can perform physical exam and order tests if needed.

Neuro eval: You more than likely have a compression neuropathy potentially carpal tunnel syndrome. Please see a neurologist for further evaluation; an EMG or ultrasound may be in order.
