In brief: Numbness / pain

Carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms can include numbness and tingling usually to the thumb, index and middle fingers.
This can often be associated with wrist pain. Symptoms are often worse with certain activity which may increase the amount of pressure within the carpal tunnel or at night while sleeping.

In brief: Carpal tunnel

This is tingling or burning in part or all of the shaded area shown above.
This is typically the first symptom to develop. The index and middle fingers are usually first to be affected. Pain in the same fingers may then develop. Numbness of the same finger(s), or in part of the palm, may develop if the condition becomes worse. http://patient.info/health/carpal-tunnel-syndrome-leaflet
