Why does my hand keep going numb?

Squeezed nerves

Stringio
Often carpal tunnel syndrome (nerve compressed in wrist) or ulnar nerve entrapment (at the funnybone area) can cause this...it is quite common. Also pinched nerve in the neck area can cause numbness to hands/fingers as well. It is difficult to accurately tell what you have based on the limited info you provided. Consult doc for an evaluation/treatment. Good luck

Why does my hand keep going numb? (I have juvenile arthritis too)

Carpal Tunnel Syn

Arthritis
Carpal tunnel syndrome is probably the most common cause. JRA itself doesn't cause numbness, but the swelling associated with JRA can cause carpal tunnel syndrome

Why does my right hand keep going numb?

Carpal tunnel

It certainly could be carpal tunnel syndrome, a pinched nerve in your wrist which makes your fingers go numb. See a Hand Surgeon for an examination and treatment.

Why might it be that my little finger and section of hand keep going numb?

Cubital tunnel

Open-uri20130709-31126-1g182jn
It could be cubital tunnel syndrome - a pinched nerve at the elbow. A Hand Surgeon can make the definitive diagnosis and treat. In the meantime avoid leaning on your elbow and avoid the bent position of the elbow for long periods.

Why dose my pointing fingers on my right hand keep going numb an get tingly?

Neuropathy

Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause the nerves to be compressed; in addition the nerve could be similarly compromised at the elbow level, the axilla or the spine. An exam and imaging can help pinpoint the cause. See your doctor for an assessment and recommendation regarding treatment.

why does my hands up to my elbow keep going numb and tingly. Also it seems to happen more when i'm driving and sleeping it wakes me up numerous times.?

Nerve compression.

Cubital_tunnel_syndrome
Numbness and tingling in the hands is usually caused by nerve compression. The nerve can be compressed in the neck, the extremity or both. Your symptoms are consistent with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). CTS is due to median nerve compression at the wrist, causing numbness/tingling in the thumb, index, long and 1/2 of the ring finger. Cubital tunnel syndrome affects the other fingers in the hand.

Why does my hands go numb all the time. They get really tingel feeling but never my pinkie finger just the rest. I swap hands while driving.

CTS?

Fingers
Could be something like carpal tunnel syndrome (trends to spare the pinkie). There are other things it could be, too. May wish to talk with your primary provider, and/or neurologist.
