My dad has been having left wrist pain. What could be wrong?

His wrist has been hurting for about 4 days. 3 days ago, his thumb, index, and middle fingers started tingling. The next day his palm felt like it was going numb. Today his wrist feels better but now his hand is swollen. Any ideas? I've tried telling him to go to the doc but he's stubborn as hell. Lol.

I believe this can happen either with a pinched nerve or a damaged ligament.  Anything else happen since?  Any face drooping?
