Right hand: This would be most commonly either an ulnar nerve irritation (or ulnar neuropathy) at the elbow (usually with arms straightened and palms facing forward, the inside of the elbow, where the funny bone is, the nerve cross the groove there) or carpal tunnel syndrome (where the median nerve goes through the wrist on the palm side of the wrist).
