What does it mean if my arms and hands go numb during sleep?

Could a pinched nerve cause this?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN YOUR ARMS & HANDS GO NUMB This means that a section of the blood vessels that circulate blood through various parts of the arm is blocked or one is infected by diseases of certain nerves in the body


Answer by  bvaniea (312)

A pinched nerve(s) could cause this. The nerve could be pinched becuase the spine is out of alignment or becuase the muscles in the shoulders/neck are tense and pinching the nerve. The former needs to be adressed by a chiropractor, and the latter a massage could be very beneficial.

It could mean a lot of things when your arm goes numb. One of the things that could be the problem is carpal tunnel


Answer by  Amanda65 (1220)

It could be a pinched nerve, but this is highly unlikely. A pinched nerve would more likely cause a problem in one area of your body. You are probably laying in a position that causes the blood flow to decrease to to your arms and hands. If this continues to happen, I would bring it up with your doctor.
