It could mean several things..of course the most obviuos is carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) if you mean your first 3 fingers and not your little finger. This is the area that the median nerve controls and when compressed or pinch can give you CTS. Usually symptoms are worse at night..and can be an ache, numbnees and tingling. Other things can mimic CTS like a pinched nerve in your neck..which can give you the same pattern of symptoms in the hand and Ulnar neuritis usually effects the last 2 fingers of your hand and is caused by an inflamation or injury to the ulnar nerve which goes through your elbow into your hand.
