Hello,

There are a few things which I can think of. Firstly, such symptoms are quite common in hands and esp thumb in patients of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. CTS is a medical condition in which the median nerve is compressed at the wrist, leading to pain, paresthesias, and muscle weakness in the forearm and hand. The other condition which I can think of is brachial plexus injury.
A brachial plexus injury occurs when the nerves that connect your arm and spinal cord get stretched or torn. Known as "stingers" or "burners," these injuries feel like an electric shock or a burning sensation shooting down your arm. Your arm may feel numb,tingling and weak, but these symptoms usually last only a few seconds or minutes.

The third thing which I can think of is Multiple Sclerosis but the chances of which seem less likely.

I would advise you to please get yourself examined by a neurologist.After confirmation only,can a treatment be started.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
