In brief: Needs evaluation

There are many possible causes of such a problem, including neurologic and muscular disorders of varying severity.
Even relatively simple problems like carpal tunnel syndrome may cause such a symptom, but it could be much more significant. This really needs prompt evaluation for diagnosis and treatment. The clinical exam may reveal a diagnosis, or testing like electromyography (EMG) may be needed.
