Sleeping : Sleeping with a limb in an unusual position can sometimes place pressure on a nerve, causing mild or more severe nerve damage. Because there are 3 major nerves that supply the hand, and because it is unusual to put pressure on more than one nerve, these sorts of injuries rarely cause numbness of the entire hand. In most cases the hand is not only numb, but is also weak. The classic example of "hand numbness and weakness after sleeping on it funny" is called saturday night palsy. Numbness in a whole hand without weakness could raise the possibility of a small stroke. These sorts of problems should be checked by a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Maybe not: Your hands could be suffering from pinched nerves at the wrists, carpal tunnel syndrome, from repetitive activities.

I fall asleep quicker if lying on my right side but have an issue falling/going back to sleep on my left. Is it because i'm right handed?
Heart Anatomy: Not your handedness, but the location of your heart determines this. Your heart is on your left side and when you sleep most people will sleep on there right side, because you do not put pressure on your heart as when you lay on your left side. People do turn through the night and sleep on there back and left side for a period of time. ...Read more
