Wendy, it sounds like something is pressing on the nerve that supplies the hand. The problem might be anywhere from the neck right down to the rest. It is usually due to inflammation, so you can try to take anti-inflammatories for a couple of days and see what happens. If it doesn’t clear up, the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
