In brief: Neuropathy

Numbness and tingling(paresthesias) in the hand and arm can be due to nerve compression in several areas: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome(from pinched nerve in wrist), Ulnar Neuropathy(nerve compression at elbow) and Cervical radiculopathy(compression in the neck) For more information on CTS see: http://bit.

In brief: Multi possibilities

I am assuming that you are right hand dominant.
It could be a problem anywhere from your brain to a peripheral nerve. If it is mostly on the radial (thumb) side on the hand that area is controlled by the medial nerve- common possibilities include carpal tunnel syndrome. If more on the pinky side then Ulnar nerve may be responsible. Your doctor may get Nerve conduction studies to help delineate.

In brief: My be Carpal Tunnel

What kind of work do you do? You may suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, due to overuse of the hand.
Easy to treat without surgery (if that's what you've got).
