Hands Fall Asleep Easily
Hands fall asleep: A symptom of hands falling asleep normally indicates nerve entrapment. It is common when driving a car or when waking up from bed. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common cause of this symptom. It is often diagnosed by nerve conduction studies and treated with wrist splints, which are often for sale at drug stores.See 2 more doctor answers
My hands fall asleep every night on me. Also, during the day they tingle every once in a while. What could this be???
Hand tingling: Do you think the part of the hands that falls asleep is the thumb, the index finger and the middle finger? Hands that "fall asleep" at night or during driving are common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. This is best diagnosed with nerve conduction tests. For many people, special wrist splints, which can be found at the drug store, are very helpful for this. Consider wearing them at night.See 1 more doctor answer
My hands fall asleep at night and during the day. When I'm holding somethingand I have a hard time maki f a fist in the morning?
Parathesias: At night we can have ulnar compression that results in hands getting numb. May be related to cervical spine disease, or thoracic outlet syndrome Would also check for carpal tunnel syndrome, especially if you work a lot with computers. Splints at night, motrin (if not allergic) may help. Rarely could be MS (usually not both sides). f/u/ w/ doc
At night while I'm in bed and in the mornings, both of my hands fall asleep and start hurting really bad. Also, in both elbows too.
Numbing of hands ins: You need to see a spine specialist to r/o any reason for spine bones to compress upon the nerves to cause those symptoms. Once that is ruled out; other avenues can be explored eg blood levels of vitamin b12; or any local bolt lesion or cyst to compress upon nerve or compromise blood supply.
Carpal tunnel: A very common cause of nocturnal hand numbess in pregnancy is compromise of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel. This is from the hormonal and fluid shifts in pregnancy. It usually clears after delivery and can be helped with wrist splints. In rare cases decompression at the wrist may be necessary.
Hands fall asleep everynight and in pain. Been wearing stints and now my wrists are itchy. What could be?
What are some possible reasons that my hands fall asleep during the night and it's only after I consume alcohol?
Hand tingling EtOH: There are many reasons that your hands can "fall asleep" during the night and many are positional. You typically move without awareness when this happens, or wake up and avoid it getting worse. Alcohol could prevent you from that awareness; but it is also toxic to the nervous system, so could ultimately worsen something like entrapped nerve, carpal tunnel or other syndromes.
What can I be? I have constatly headaches, chestpain and I have notice that either my legs or hands fall asleep. I'm 35 years old.
Haedache: Sounds like there is disturbance of nervous and circulation balance. You will need whole panel of lab tests to rule out the cause.
Haven't slept well since approx. Jan 2014. I wake up many times @ night bc arms and hands fall asleep no matter my pos. Feet & legs burn too. Cause?
Need eval: You need medical evaluation for your complaints. I would start with evaluating your neck as I would be concerned there is something going on in your cervical spine that's causing some pressure on the spinal cord which could cause your symptoms. Also concern would be diseases that cause what is known as peripheral neuropathy. Please see your doctor for evaluation. Hope this was helpful. Good luck
Why do my hands fall asleep when I'm just sitting in one position for just a short time? My legs also, whenever I cross them, almost instantly. Also, whenever I bend my left arm or turn my wrist, it feels like I'm hitting my funny bone
Pressure palsies: There is a genetic entity termed "congenital pressure palsy" where patients are inordinately sensitive to nerve pressure. Although other patients have subclinical peripheral neuropathies which sensitize them to low level nerve compressions. See neurologist.See 1 more doctor answer
I have severe muscle spasms in my left leg. Weakness in both legs. Both hands fall asleep and I have a loss of sensitivity in my fingers?
See Neurologist now: Your symptoms are very concerning, urgent that you see Neurologist asap. Comprehensive workup is indicated including blood tests, MRI of spine and brain. If these symptoms just started, call 911 or go to nearest ER. You did not give any history, but it will be important to determine if you have had recent injury, trauma or involved in Motor vehicle accident. Please see Neurologist now,
I have very red palms, numbness&tingling in fingers & toes with sharp pains shooting up arms & legs. My hands fall asleep& I have to shake them.
Be seen: I would not hesitate to be seen. There may be more than one condition contributing, or they may all be stemming from one systemic condition. A nerve conduction test would probably be helpful in addition to being seen and examined.
