Doctor insights on:
My Fingers Are Numb When I Wake Up
Probably not: It usually means you have cut off circulation from sleeping in an odd position; however, it could be carpal tunnel syndrome. Try wearing a wrist splint at night to keep your wrists from bending while you sleep, and also pillows under your elbows to avoid pressure there. If it keeps up, see your doctor for testing. ...Read more
Ulnar nerve: A numb little finger is usually due to compression of the ulnar nerve. The most common place to compress it is at the elbow, sometimes by sleeping one your back with the elbow bent and the "funny bone" part of the elbow pressing against the bed. Another place to compress is at the wrist--usually by bending the wrist. If you sleep with your elbow bent a lot, there are ways to prevent that. ...Read more

? carpal tunnel synd?: Most likely, you are experiencing nerve compression at the wrist, and activity and positioning exacerbates the ongoing process. This may be a consequence of repetitive keyboarding or flexion/extension movements of the wrists. See your doctor, obtain an EMG study, and get this treated, as a full cure is highly likely indeed. ...Read more
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 had numbness in one finger few weeks ago after waking up and today I wake up to my lips being numb should I be concerned?

T.O.S.: Aching shoulder pain, numb fingers, global arm numbness awakening from sleep, ; "shoulder knot", likely a loci of muscle spasm, all suggestive of thoracic outlet syndrome. Diagnosis is best made by osteopath or physiatrist. In my opinion, many neurologist doubt that it exists; so do not rely on them. Vascular surgeons know how to diagnose. ...Read more
What would cause me to wake up in mornings with numb fingers followed by pins & needles? Also now a pain near the knuckles. No other symptoms. Thanks.
When I wake up my entire arm is in a pretty bad pain while feeling kind of numb and my finger tips feel tingly. What could be the reason?
It depends: Often an arm that is in pain with numbness and tingling after awakening meant that you slept on it, causing a decrease in blood flow and/or a compression of one of the nerves in the arm. If this is the case, it should resolve on its own. However, with your history of diabetes, this could be neuropathic pain if your diabetes is not well controlled. A visit with your doctor may be needed. ...Read more

Pressure neuropathy: Is my best guess, based on your sleep position. Make sure you are not sleeping on your hand, or propping it up or on your chest. Does it eventually go away each day? If not, you could also have an odd pattern of carpal tunnel syndrome. Wear a wrist brace to sleep (not tight though) and see your doc if it persists. ...Read more

Why is the tip of my middle finger numb? Also, I wake up every morning with both hands tingling... I recently started prep cooking in a restaurant.
Need to see a doctor: This could be either neck problem or possible carpal tunnel syndrome. You need to see a doctor to get a completely neurological examination. Did you ever had neck injury during sports or motor vehicle accident in the past? If you did, it is possible the numbness related to the neck injury. If you did not it is possible carpal tunnel. I still recommend you to see a doctor to rule out other causes. ...Read more

Nerve pinching: Sounds like a nerve compression. This may be at the neck or over the plexus in the shoulder region, or even more distal such as wrist, or elbow. Carpal tunnel can refer pain upwards into the shoulder. Thoracic outlet can cause numbness in ring and little fingers. Get this sorted out by an exam from your doctor. ...Read more

Before discussing: Specific treatment or exercises for the neck or cervical spine you should be evaluated for a carpal tunnel syndrome as that is a very common condition that can lead to this pattern of symptoms or you may be " doubly" affected by a "pinched " nerve in your neck as well as at the wrist which is known as a " double crush syndrome"! so see your doctor first to get a correct diagnosis. ...Read more
Had carpal tunnel surgery back in 2009 and my fingers and arm are still going numb and wake me up out of my sleep... What could this be?
New exam. Maybe EMG: A new examination by a physician who specializes in nerve pain (dysesthesias) is warranted. The key would be to perform a physical exam and history to try to differentiate the cause. Electrodiagnostic studies (EMG) may be indicated to evaluate specific nerves. Get eval with neurologist, physiatrist, or hand surgeon to help. ...Read more

In interim, start using hand brace and nsaids.Md may inject steroid or Gabapentin tab. ...Read more

Be seen: There are a number of potential causes, I would not hesitate to be seen and accurately diagnosed. A nerve conduction test may help to aid in the diagnosis. If the numbness involves primarily the 4th and 4th fingers and can be reproduced by elbow flexion, cubital tunnel syndrome would be a primary consideration. ...Read more
