What's wrong if your losing feeling in your hands?

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?
