Carpal tunnel: A likely cause is a carpal tunnel syndrome impinging nerves at the wrist which results in these symptoms which are often positional.

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
