In brief: Yes

Yes, something has happened.
It could be something mechanical such as carpal tunnel syndrome or a pinched nerve in your forearm or neck. The other could be metabolic such as diabetes. If not getting better it's good idea for your doc to see.

In brief: Nerve irritation

Numbness is usually due irritation of a nerve.
The irritation can take place anywhere along the course of the nerve: from the neck to the finger. It is not uncommon to have occasional numbness. When symptoms become frequent or severe, it may be a sign of something wrong. See you doctor for a comprehensive evaluation.
