My right hand keeps going numb while I sleep and through out the day. It even wakes me up at night a couple of times because it hurts.

Carpal tunnel: A likely cause is a carpal tunnel syndrome impinging nerves at the wrist which results in these symptoms which are often positional. Various factors can cause the wrist ligaments to thicken and exert pressure on these wrist structures. A hand surgeon is best qualified to evaluate, advise and treat you. Treatment may be wearing a brace, getting a corticosteroid injection or surgery. ...Read more

Pain and numbness in right hand at night that keeps me awake and hurts a lot on a lot of medicines and vitamins worried help me almost every night now for the past month I wake up in the middle of the night in agony, to pain throbbing pain in my right ha

While: While these symptoms are typical of carpal tunnel syndrome, there can be a variety of causes. If you want a simple check, buy any of the over-the-counter "computer" or "carpal tunnel" braces to wear at night. I prefer to straighten the stay (metal part that makes the splint rigid) to a neutral wrist position, with the fingers in line with the forearm, rather than tipping the wrist back where the thumb is in line with the forearm. The straighter splint takes the most pressure off the nerve. If it relieves your symptoms, it's more likely that you have carpal tunnel syndrome.

Depending on your age, general health, location of symptoms within the hand, and any motor or sensory loss, there may be other conditions and treatments to consider. Numbness that persists throughout the day or weakness in the hand requires immediate evaluation by a trained hand surgeon. ...Read more

My palms hurt when I want to open something and also if I squeeze them. And my feet hurts sometimes while walking. What could it be?

Multiple possibility: Trigger finger can causes this symptom in hands if a finger gets stuck when you try to open it. Also something call Depuytrens contracture can cause this as well if you have tough firm cords or nodules in your hand. Another possibility is simply arthritis.

Regarding foot, if no swelling or injury, think about plantar fasciitis. This is probably the most common foot ailment. ...Read more
