Dear Newby
You may have a pinched nerve in the wrist due to carpal tunnel syndrome. It may help to treat with anti-inflammatory like Neurofen and voltaren jel if you are not allergic to any medicine or have contra-indications to using it. If it does not improve your doctor may need to refer you to an orthopedic specialist.
