Numbness in right hand

Hi Doctors, From last few days my wife is suffering from numbness and pain in right hand. We have consulted with the general physician. He prescribed vitamin and nerve enhancement tablets for five days course. Now after 5 days course numbness reduced from full hand to only fingers.but pain is still there in right hand. Can you please suggest what could be the possible reason for the same and which specialised Doctor we should have to consult for the same. Thanks in advance.
