This Morning I Woke Up And I Knew I Was Laying On My Hand. When I Tried To Move My Left Hand, It Was Asleep. About An Hour Later, I Woke Up And Started Getting Ready... My Hand Was Still Asleep. For The Past 24 Hours Now My Hand Is Still Feeling The Same Way. (asleep) Its Just My Thumb And The Right Side On My Pointer Finger, And A Tad Bit Of My Wrist.... Going Down My Thumb.

Does Anyone Have Any Ideas What This Can Be? I Do Not Have Insurance, And I Dont Know If I Should Goto The Docter.

Thank You!!!

  • I believe there are 2 major nerves in your forearm, and 1 goes to the thumb, pointer and middle fingers, the other goes to the ring and pinky fingers. You probably just pinched the nerve that runs down the thumb side. If it keeps up for more than a day, I would see someone for it.

  • What kind of work do you do? Could be carpal tunnel syndrome. They make braces for you to use when you sleep. I would also cut back on salt. Good Luck!
