In brief: Elevate hand

If your hand is just numbness and tingling, that is a nerve problem. Sometimes, swelling can cause numbness and tingling.
To make matters more confusing, some numbness and tingling can make your hands feel swollen. Not a simple situation. There are conditions which can cause both swelling and numbness. Maybe wear a carpal tunnel brace at night for a week and see how you feel.
