Carpal tunnel: It certainly could be carpal tunnel syndrome, a pinched nerve in your wrist which makes your fingers go numb. See a hand surgeon for an examination and treatment.

Nerve compression: This is most likely a nerve compression such as carpal tunnel or cubital tunnel syndrome. An evaluation by a hand surgeon with appropriate testing for nerve function can determine the cause.
