Which part?

The most common reason for this would be Carpal Tunnel in which case your 1st 3 or 4 fingers would go numb. Try a carpal tunnel splint at night for a while. It is possible you might need an injection in your wrist. See a PMR doctor or orthopedic surgeon

What does ot mean if hands always go numb and is worst while laying down as if somebody is sitting on your arms?

Likely nerve

Carpal_tunnel_syndrome
Most common cause is carpal tunnel syndrome, with nerves compressed at wrists, perhaps secondary to keyboarding. Although might wonder re nerves higher up in arms, this is less likely. Could wonder about a neck issue (stenosis?), and recommend you see your doctor and perhaps get films of neck. An EMG study will probably confirm CTS.

Why do my hands go numb when I'm sleeping?

Carpal tunnel?

Hand
Hands that go numb or tingle in the middle of the night are often from carpal tunnel syndrome and less likely from cubital tunnel syndrome (ulnar nerve compression) at the elbow. If left untreated either may progress to permanent numbness and weakness.

Why do my hands go numb when I lay down or go to sleep at night?

Carpal Tunnels

Numbness_
You may be naturally resting on the palms of your wrists (maybe even laying your head on your wrists), unintentionally pressing on the flexor retinaculum which is a band that compresses the carpal tunnel. This is the pathway for the median nerve entering into the wrist, causing numbness. People who work on computers all day have the same problem.

Why do my hands go numb whenever I'm nervous and I get stomach aches the whole time?

Flight or fight

When you feel threatened, you respond by reducing blood flow to the extremities, hands and feet and digestive system so that your muscles get increased blood flow to prepare for fighting or running away. This is a primitive response system that occurs automatically.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

Why do my hands arms & legs go numb, then collapse loose facial muscle, feel very sleepy but am awake and can talk. all test say I am fine.

Cannot diagnose

Extremity-upper-hand
Have no idea what tests were performed, and in order for you to receive any decent advice the doctor (try a Neurologist) will need a full detailed history, your prior medical records and a physical exam. They could then determine whether imaging studies or other tests are needed. Good luck with this.

Dr. Mohammad Homsi answered:

why do my hands stay numb ?

Hand numbness

Numbness_
Hand numbness can be caused by carpal tunnel syndrome which is a compression of median nerve in the wrist, it can occur in women , pregnancy, hypothyroidism, and over use of hands. You should be seen and evaluated. Wrist splint can be tried first, in severe cases surgery to release the nerve may be needed.

Dr. Megan Bird answered:

Why do my hands get numb in pregnancy?

Swelling!

Blood
When you double your blood volume in pregnancy, there is a lot of swelling. Some you see and some you don't. Swelling around the nerves in your wrist and elbow can squeeze the nerves. It is a temporary problem but really frustrating and it can be painful. Splints at night can sometimes help. It will resolved after pregnancy but may take a few weeks.
