T = time (you have less than 3hrs to get to ER for diagnosis & treatment) so call 911 to expedite your evaluation & care. Don't wait to see if weakness goes away.

May be nothing: So long as the strength of the hand came back within a minute or two after awakening and so long as that doesn't happen again you may have simply been sleeping on it in a funny matter.

My left hand feels weak grabbing things and when I type for the last few days. It feels like I can't control it properly. What could this be?
Numbness: To know for sure, you need an examination. Differential diagnosis could be cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve in neck), brachial plexopathy, peripheral nerve entrapment such as ulnar neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, or even myofascial pain with trigger points. Would suggest a pm&r evaluation for definitive diagnosis and treatment.

The side & pinky of my left hand went numb & the hand was very weak. That lasted for months. Now it's the other hand, what could be wrong?
Most common cause of: This problem is ulnar neuropathy, a nerve supplying the ring and pinky fingers with adjacent part of the hand. Its normally trapped at the elbow (funny bone area) or at wrist (less commonly). Another possibility is that 2 sides nerves are getting trapped at the neck level. See an orthopod and a neurologist to confirm the DX and treatment to be started.
Get another opinion: Get another opinion. What your doctor told you does not make any sense.
