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

Get an MRI and look for c7 nerve root problems. If the MRI is negative but the pain persists, you may need a myelogram with post-myelogram ct of the cervical spine to look for abnormalities. A neurosurgeon should be able to help. ...Read more

Nerve issue: This sounds like a nerve issue. Either it was positional when you or sleeping, and it is likely the same nerve, median, that carpal tunnel can affect, or a nerve from your neck or shoulder coming down. Typically this does resolve over time. I would recommend an evaluation if it does not. ...Read more
