Dr. Herbert Krob
Neurology

In brief: Neurological

Neurological problems that could cause numbness perceived in both hands include compression of the nerves that feel the hands (most commonly the median nerve, but possibly the ulnar nerve or the radial nerve) or the tributaries of these nerves (cervical nerve roots or brachial plexus), a problem involving the spinal cord (such as transverse myelitis), or some more abstract problems (such as hyperventilation or migraine aura).
Similar feelings could also come from problems affecting blood vessels or blood chemistry. It is a good idea to get these kind of symptoms checked by a doctor.
