My hand gets numb and between my thumb and index finger hurts a lot what causes the pain?

The area between. Your thumb and index is innervated by a sensory branch of the radial nerve, this nerve runs past the base of the thumb and comes from an area near the thumb side of your wrist under a muscle called the brachioradialis. Any irritation tho this nerve can result in altered snesation in this area, commonly an arthritic joint will hurt and the nerve may be irrupted from the joint or a splint.
