Hand numbness upon waking in the middle of the night
Interred posted:
This may seem strange however for the past six months or so I have experienced hand/finger numbness upon waking in the middle of the night. This has occurred on both hands repeatedly (but not at the same time). Apparently, I become aware of the numbness even before I am fully awake because on several occasions I have awakened to me flexing my own hand to get some feeling back into it. Honestly, I do not know if I would call it numbness because it feels like my hand/fingers have fallen asleep. I have regained feeling in my hands/fingers each time this happened. Usually, I end up massaging the hand in question for a few minutes during which time I experience a slight tingling sensation. Could this be part of sleep paralysis? It does not happen during the day when I am awake. Thank you for your time.
