What Causes Pain And Numbness In Arms And Hands
Let me explain: Peripheral neuropathy, a result of nerve damage, often causes numbness and pain in your hands and feet. People typically describe the pain of peripheral neuropathy as tingling or burning, while they may compare the loss of sensation to the feeling of wearing a thin stocking or glove. Causes. Alcoholism autoimmune diseases diabetes exposure to poisons trauma or pressure on the nerve.
Impingements: Intermittent nerve compression can cause. Pinching occurs at costoclavicular dimension, true thoracic outlet. Raising arm unconsciously during sleep causes this space to close by a few millimeters, pinching main nerve ; artery to arm. Ulnar parasthesias (crawly tingling feelings) occur in pinky side of hand. This dynamic is called thoracic outlet syndrome (tos). See my discussion at quora. Com.See 2 more doctor answers

Not really: If it is happening while asleep, I do not know how you feel those experiences. In any case if this is not happening all the time particularly while awake, it is most likely some benign process. Even if it is happening all the time it is sign of what we call peripheral neuropathy which is caused by multiple condition. Diabetes is by far the most common causeSee 3 more doctor answers

Arm numbness: Numbness in the arms often occurs from sleeping with the arms bent or working in a job with a lot of repetition. Other frequent causes include spinal stenosis or compression of the spinal cord. Diabetes, low B12 levels, and low thyroid function are common causes too. A neurological evaluation and a nerve conduction test can identify the cause of the numbness.

Radiculopathy: It sounds like a disc has herniated in your neck or some other issues closing off the opening your nerve roots run through to exit the cervical spine. These are classic symptoms and I recommend seeing a physician sooner than later to identify if there is anything emergent or surgical necessity to avoid arm paralysis. You may not need anything but a Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack, but get checked to be sure.
