Nerve Compression: Loss of feeling in the hands is usually caused by a compressed nerve in the arm/hand/wrist. These are known as compressive neuropathies. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common one. Key questions to ask are the following:
what part of the hand is going numb?
When does it occur?
Do you have weakness?
