Finger numbness: Berniew ~ you might be compressing the nerves in the neck or axilla by lying in a position that compresses them. Try sleeping in a different position and see what happens, thanks

You might have...: carpel tunnel syndrome, a condition caused by pressure on the median nerve where in goes thru a connective tissue tunnel on the thumb side of the wrist. Pressure on this nerve can cause numbness & tingling of the thumb, index & middle fingers and can also weaken hand grip. Please see a doctor! Meanwhile, wearing semi-flexible wrist splints @ night might help relieve your symptoms.
