I have numbness in my whole hand when I lay down. I do have neck pain would this cause this to happen?
"pinched nerve": There are nerves in your neck that go down to innervate your hand.

I would advise you to consult an osteopathic physician who may be able to free up the nerve and relieve your symptoms. ...Read more
When i sleep both of my arms and hands go numb i wake and stand up until the pain and numbness go away.What is my problem it happens when i work longer hours with chainsaw and other hand tools.What is the cause of this
Hand : Hand numbness that appears in sleep and with repetitive movements is commonly a symptom of carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition in which one of the 3 major nerves to the hand gets compressed in the wrist. This causes numbness in the thumb, index, and middle finger, and sometimes in part or all of the ring finger, but usually not the pinkie. Discomfort from carpal tunnel syndrome can be felt elsewhere in the upper limb, but if there is true numbness anywhere in the forearm or arm, this can indicate a different problem, such as damage to the nerve roots or plexuses (big nerve interchanges) in the neck and shoulder. There are two other major nerves that go down into the hands, the radial nerve and the ulnar nerve, that could also be involved depending on the pattern of the problem it is a good idea to get hand problems checked by a primary care doctor, who can then refer to a neurologist if needed. Left undiagnosed and untreated, problems like hand numbness can become worse, or develop into weakness of the hands. More information on carpal tunnel syndrome and similar diagnoses can be found at: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/carpal-tunnel-syndrome/ds00326. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
