In brief: Nocturnal tingling

Night tingling in hands and fingers is a common sign of carpal tunnel but can also represent any compression nerve problem or other neuropathy.
At night when asleep the hands swell so pressure in the nerve rises. changing microcirucation within the nerve and leading to increased symptoms.See yourPCP or a hand surgeon..but a simple not too tight wrist splint may help. if worn when asleep
