Refer to answer. You may have carpal tunnel syndrome, +/- disc in your neck. You may want to try over the door cervical traction with 10 lbs for 10 minutes/day(can obtain from surgical supply stores).Avoid more than 10 lbs push, pull , and lift. Also buy vits b650 mg, B12 500 mcg, and 400 mcg per day. If do not get better within two weeks refer to you doctor for metabolic, thyroid, arthritis, and gout work up.
