In brief: R/o Carpal tunnel

Tingling ; numbness in the hand can be symptoms associated with median nerve compression or irritation.
This is quite common. Some patients may have similar symptoms due to nerves being irritated in the neck. See a neurologist to get an emg/nerve conduction test. If the test confirms carpal tunnel syndrome then you will likely be referred to a hand surgeon.
