In brief: Time to see the doc

The longer she stays numb the more difficult it can be for the nerve to recover. Get her in to see the hand specialist.

In brief: See a hand surgeon

Early carpal tunnel syndrome is easily treatable, either with splinting or a simple operation.
Longstanding or severe median nerve compression can cause permanent numbness, pain and weakness. Get it checked out.
