I believe this is the beginning of arthritis. I am 48 year old female and last week started getting shooting pains going through my right palm and then through my fingers. I work on computers at work and think this may be carpal tunnel/arthritis combination. Some days are better than others but the cramping seems to be getting worse and lasting longer. Is this going to continue to escalate or will it come and go based on the weather, use of hand, etc.
This could be arthritis, carpal or a number of other conditions. The only way to know for certain is to get in to have a doctor check it out. Please make an appt and let us know what you find out. Then we will better be able to help you in knowing what to expect in the long run.
