Numbness
Hi All,

I am a 22 year old female. Yesterday I woke from a deep sleep at night due to a numb left hand and this happened twice during the night. I have experienced this numbness of hands some two or three years back too. Anyone can explain the reason ?

Hi there!

A feeling of numbness when suddenly waking up from sleep is not particularly abnormal. This is commonly associated with phases of the sleep cycle or could occasionally occur due to nerve impingement due to postural changes in sleep and should not be anything to worry about as long as it does not continue beyond a few minutes. If the symptoms are prolonged, causes such as TIA etc. would need to be evaluated for and would require consulting a primary care physician or a neurologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
