In brief: Numbness

Numbness and tingling of the extremities are typically seen in peripheral neuropathies.
Swelling is a typical symptoms of inflammation. Any history of trauma or rheumatic disease? For a better orientation you need to provide more details! i think the best option at this point is to go talk to your pcp or your family physician.

In brief: This

This is not a typical combination of symptoms.
The numbness and tingling would suggest a neck issue while hand swelling is not typical with this. So-called brachial plexus or thoracic outlet problems might also be considered. Having said that, a visit to the doctor would be in order with a good history, exam, x-rays and then possibly nerve tests, and MRI for starters. Best of luck.
