I woke up with my hand completely numb. I take oxycodone but only because I have kidney stones. I haven't taken morethan i should. What could be the cause of the numbness?

In brief: Is hand still numb?

Your hand may have been "asleep" from the position you were in when sleeping.
If that numbness has gone away, that was probably the cause. If it is still numb, please see your doctor or go to the emergency room as soon as possible to find out what is wrong.

The initial answer is correct.
The key question is if your hand is still numb. If it is you need to be seen by an md and examined.
