Why numbness in thumb, index and middle finger on the right hand during sleep ?

Carpal tunnel: You must have your hand folded down sometimes during sleep. If you hold that position for long enough, carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms can result. Wear a wrist brace specifically designed for carpal tunnel when you go to sleep. Be sure it has a firm support like plastic of metal to keep the wrist in good position. Don't get a completely soft wrist brace since that's not adequate. ...Read more

My mum has frequent numdness on her left hand, during sleep. And wakes up with tight movement of her fingers. What could be the cause?

Carpal Tunnel: This is likely carpal tunnel syndrome, a compression of the median nerve at the wrist. People who perform repetitive or fine tasks with their hands, eg typists, are at most risk. If there is doubt, a nerve conduction study can diagnose for sure. Treatment can be as simple as a brace or as complex as surgical release. Rarely can be associated with hypothyroidism or other issues but most often not. ...Read more

Agree : Dr krauser urges you to put the cart before the horse and get diagnosed. Lots of push to get into alternative therapies by entrepreneurial promoters, but you need to know what is wrong, as things can get worse rather rapidly with certain activities. Sounds like you do have nerve issues, and consider thoracic outlet, but also more peripheral nerve issues. ...Read more

Hi Doctor, left hand numbness while sleeping. Though used wrist cover, still has it. He gets tired and now he can hear ticking when he bend fingers?

Hi Doctor,
left hand numbness while sleeping. Though  used  wrist cover, still has it. He gets tired  and now he can hear ticking when he bend fingers?

?????: Sorry, only part of your post is understandable. So this isn't about you, this is about "him"? You really need to have "him" see a doctor who can have an actual conversation with "him" and examine "him" because I doubt you'll get any kind of satisfactory answer this way. Your English is not good enough. Preferably see a doctor who speaks "his" native language, eh? ...Read more
