1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes if persistent

Transient hand numbness in the morning is very common in conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome.
This usually resolves quickly and is not an emergency. However inability to move the hand and persistent weakness can be the sign of something more serious like a stroke.
