Tingling and Severe pain in right hand/arm

I am 5 weeks post partum and I have been having tingling in my right hand and severe pain in my right hand.  The tingling used to just be in the morning now it is all day long.  I also have a burning pain that started out in my middle finger and has now moved to my ring finger and slowly to my pointer and pinky.  I can barely close my hand to make a fist.  In the morning when i wake up my fingers and lower arm look swollen.  All of my symptoms are slowly getting worse.  Its so bad in the morning that I can barely lift up my newborn to feed him.  Please help!  Some other information that might be important is that I had an epidural and when the nurse was trying to put the ivy in my right hand she had a really hard time and then said that the vessel blew.  She then put the ivy in my right arm under my elbow.
