Carpal tunnel??: The pattern of numbness in the right hand can tell you something about the nerves that are being compressed. If this is your dominant hand and you do a lot of work with it (ie. Repetitive hammering, sanding) you could develop carpal tunnel syndrome. This tends to affect the thumb, index and 3rd fingers mostly, although sometimes it may also involve the 4th finger. Check with your doctor.

Parasthesias: Early 30's male with tingling/numbness (parasthesias) of one hand suggests neural tract impingement. Whether neual impingement occurs in wrist, elbow, shoulder, or neck is something for doctor to determine. Osteopath might be a good place to start. Have electrodiagnostic tests, but choose a generalist to lead the work-up. Imo, neurologists sometimes not broad minded about these type of symptoms.
