Muscular, carpal tun: This may be a significant muscular problem related to your neck position during sleep. Experiment with pillow. Could also be a bit of irritation of nerves in the neck without true hnp. Also, carpal tunnel synd often causes upper extremity pain and tingling/numbness at night. Try a Velcro wrist brace when you sleep
