Hands falling asleep
My hands have been falling asleep while I sleep and during the day.  They also hurt during the day.  What would be causing this?

Hello dear and welcome to the medhelp forum. You may be sleeping with weight of head-on the hands causing nerve compression and hence the sleeping sensation. Consider getting a blood work up for electrolytes. MRI cervical spine is warranted to check for any disc degeneration or herniation. Nerve compression of the nerve roots that exit the vertebral column from the spinal cord could be causing these symptoms. Rule out any trauma to the hands. Management would depend on the diagnosis. Wishing you all the best and take care.
