In brief: Yes

Among the most common complaints, patients will reveal that their hands fall asleep or that things slip from their fingers without their noticing (loss of grip, dropping things); numbness and tingling also are commonly described complaints should be localized to the palmar aspect of the first to the fourth fingers and the distal palm (ie, the sensory distribution of the median nerve at the wrist).
