Hi,

Have you been feeling any tingling in your fingers? Is so which ones?

Do you have any history of neck injury or trauma?

Did this start all of a sudden or over time?

Hi,

Your symptoms are most likely due to pinched nerve either in the cervical spine due to herniated disc or due to nerve compression at the wrist .Some times median nerve compression can cause pain in the hand and up to the elbow .You may be seen by a neurologist for further evaluation .
