What is the diagnosis for numbness in hands that wake you up at night time?

Many possibilities.

Nocturnal
It can be the position you sleep in that causes this. It can be a pinched nerve in the neck. It can be circulation problems. See a physician and find out!

Do gallbladder symptoms wake you up at night- pain nausea? Hida 7% neg upper lower scopes. Pain after eating hotdogs icecream chocolate . Belching

Usually, yes.

Nocturnal
The gallbladder ejection fraction should be more than 40%, meaning that after a meal, more than 40% of the content of the gallbladder (bile) is evacuated. In your case, it is only 7%, meaning that there is a dyskinesia and this can be translated as abdominal pain or discomfort. You should see your doctor to discuss about removal of your gallbladder to help you. Good luck.

Please what causes one to wake up sometime at night with a severe frontal headache. Thank you.?

Worrisome...

Sleep
If a headache is bad enough to awaken you from your sleep, or is very severe, whether frontal or other part of scalp (there are no pain fibers in the brain!), you must see your physician. Most presume a headache is just a headache. But if never evaluated/worked up for causes, particularly if pattern changes, or become more severe, it needs to be. Must rule out brain tumor. If no cause found, Rx.

Headaches wake me up at night and persists during the day. Have had frequent headaches for many years. Reason to worry?

Worry? No-Treat? Yes

Headache
Headaches waking you up persistently at night may be any number of things from tension type to migraine and there are others. Your use of the words "many years" suggests that these are likely benign (though I'm certain painful and perhaps even debilitating). Therefore, should you be WORRIED? I would say likely NOT...but I suggest a good headache specialist to get you treated on back to yourself

Dr. Scott J. Diede answered:

When I take a benadryl at night before I go to bed why do I always wake up with a horrific headache that lasts for about 45 min?

Known side effect

Benadryl
Benadryl can cause headache in certain patients (mechanism unknown). If you are taking Benadryl at night to help you get to sleep, I have had many patients do well taking melatonin (3 mg - over the counter) instead.

I have been having sever headaches that seem to start from dreaming they wake me up at night and cannot get back to sleep cause of the pain?

See below

Sleep
Few disorders can present as such, one of which is sleep apnea (as you wake up from REM sleep w/ headaches) This is especially true if you snore, gasp or choke for breath at night, have a dry mouth, night time reflux, &/or daytime sleepiness. In that case, an eval. by a sleep doctor is recommended. Otherwise if you have other symptoms, a neurologist can eval. you for other causes of your headaches

Coughing, sneezing, sore throat, hoarse voice, dry cough, bad headache, wake up at night coughing and cant fall back asleep and 99.1-99.4 fever?

URI (common cold)

Cough_
Sounds like you're describing an upper respiratory infection or URI. Influenza or flu is accompanied by muscle aches & fever >100. Some describe it as worse cold ever. Strep throat is sore throat w/fever & swollen tonsils w/pus & tender glands w/o cough. Recent study says average duration of cough is 18 days. But if you have any concern for worsening symptoms or shortness of breath, go see doc.
