An EMG test might confirm. Reassured that your docs are looking at heart issues, as this is another possibility. ...Read more

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. If the problem persists or if you begin to get painful sensations in the wrist or numbness and tingling in the first three digits of that hand then, you should see your doctor or a neurologist. ...Read more

Carpal : Carpal tunnel syndrome is typically experienced as the hand "falling asleep" with numbness and tingling, mostly involving the thumb, index, and middle fingers. Some people will also have wrist pain with it. Early, mild cases do not require surgery, but more advanced cases will. It is best to see a certified hand surgeon for a full nerve evaluation, as more things than just carpal tunnel syndrome can cause the symptoms. A related condition, cubital tunnel syndrome is also common and involves the small finger (pinky) and often the ring finger. It requires surgery less often. ...Read more
