Discuss with MD: See your doctor and make sure you don't have arthritis/disk disease in your neck causing compression to your nerve roots giving sensation of paralysis, you can get a temporary neuropraxia from sleeping on your arms, or other body parts in a manner that compresses nerves. Electrolytes and neurological work up may be needed.

My thumb shakes when scrolling on cell, numbness in hands sleeping/awake, numbness tinglin in both hands in feet. ..What is it?

Varies: There are a number of possibilities, I would not hesitate to be seen for a specific diagnosis. Numbness is a neurological symptom and a nerve conduction test can usually sort it out as well. The two most common causes are either a pinched nerve somewhere, with carpal tunnel syndrome being the most common that involves the thumb; or a neurological condition such as a neuropathy for example.

Splints: Flexion of the elbows as wells as wrists as we sleep puts stress on the ulnar and median nerves respectively which contributes to cubital and carpal tunnel. It is difficult to maintain proper positioning at night without some type of either wrist or elbow splint depending on the nerve involved.

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?

Neck problems: It is very possible that the root if your numbness, tingling and lack of strength of upper extremities and hands is on the neck. High and hard pillows may exacerbate it while in bed. Make a consult to a chiropractor or medical doctor regarding your neck contracture and pain. Use a soft pillow or none at all. Relax your neck when you work at the office, using a tall seat whenever possible.
