Temporary strain: In all likelihood you slept with your hand/arm twisted or compressed some way in bed. This is very common; you may have compressed a nerve. If you have not experienced this before it can be surprising how long the discomfort can last once you are up and moving it into different positions. It should not last a day. If it does, or longer especially, see you doctor for evaluation. Good wishes:)
