Numbness on waking: When you are sleeping, there is reduced movements. Sometimes, one may lie in a position that compresses some nerves for hours, or compresses blood vessels that supply these nerves. These nerves then do not function properly, and there can be a sensation of numbness or tingling, even pain. With movement after you wake up, the pressure is released, and function rapidly returns to normal. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel. The thumb and first two fingers on my right hand are going numb during the night. When I wake up and the blood starts flowing back I have excruciating pain. Can't this cause damage to my hand?

I have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel. The thumb and first two fingers on my right hand are going numb during the night. When I wake up and the blood starts flowing back I have excruciating pain. Can't this cause damage to my hand?

Yes.: Yes. Carpal tunnel syndrome is structural. A normal tunnel that tendons and nerves pass through to the hand is tighter or looser in individuals based on genetics--just like loose or tight joints. Those of us with tight tunnels gradually develop carpal tunnel syndrome. The end result is permanent nerve damage (weakness, atrophy, numbness). It's nothing you are doing that is causing this. You are just starting to notice that you have the disease. It is a very slowly progressive disease and you might be able to manage the symptoms with wrist splints at night for years. When you start getting numb in spite of the splints or when the numbness lingers for more than 5-10 minutes, then it's time to have surgery. ...Read more

My finger tips and toes are always cold and sometimes numb. Could I be anenmic? I'm always cold.

Maybe, but unlikely: Cold finger tips and toes are usually not caused by anemia, but a cold environment. Some people are more sensitve to the cold than others. There is a condition called raynaud phenomenon which is an exaggerated vascular response to the cold where the fingers and toes become almost white in reponse to the cold. I recommend seeing your doctor about further testing (including anemia) for a diagnosis. ...Read more

My big toes and fingers partially numbed what could be the reason?
