In brief: Multiple causes

There are multiple causes, ranging from carpal tunnel syndrome to cervical spine disease to metabolic issues such as diabetes mellitus and thyroid trouble.
Your pcp and/or a neurologist can help to narrow down the possibilities and guide treatment.

Other causes can be some infections (less likely), vitamin deficiencies, and even serious nerve problems like multiple sclerosis. I agree with Dr Bragg that seeing your physician is an important step to making the right diagnosis
