In brief: Impingement.

If you are having persistent left sided symptoms of left hand numbness or tingling with muscle spasm a nerve impingement could be possible.
Given symptoms to index finger and thumb carpal tunnel a possibility too. You should get this checked into given it has persisted this long.
