Numbness in my hand

Doc,
I am 38 year old male, and have recently started developing numbness in my left hand. IT appears its only the bottom half of my hand , basically the base of my little finger down to my hand.
Any idea of the cause?

Dear M
This could be the nerve that is pinched at the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome) Let your doctor have a look, sometimes you can treat this symptomatically but sometimes you need a referral to an orthopedic specialist to have a small operation to release the nerve
