In brief: Carpel tunnel

Carpal tunnel syndrome is one possibility.
Usually the numbness is felt in the thumb, second, 'third and the inside of the fourth finger. In carpal tunnel the median nerve is squeezed and this causes the numbness. Other neurologic conditions can also cause numbness such as pinched nerves in the neck, shoulder, or along the arm. When you are evaluated, these are conditions that will be looked for.

In brief: Carpal Tunnel Syndro

Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most likely cause and can be confirmed with office testing and also an EMG performed by a neurologist.
Diabetes mellitus is also a common cause if one is diabetic. Less common causes would be cervical spine (neck) issues or toxic metal exposures.
