    Fingers falling asleep?

    I keep having trouble with my fingers and sometimes my whole hand falling asleep, its worse at night and is a real pain when the alarm clock goes off and I have to fumble around cause I don't have any feeling in my finger tips to turn the damn thing off.

    Anyone know what i can do about it.
    Cool

    Are you sleeping in some kind of weird position where your hand might be elevated or you might be sleeping on it?

    I get that when I sleep sometimes also. I think it is becuase you have been sleeping on your arm and have cut off circulation, giving it that dead feeling.

    I say don't do anything about it. I think it is kind of a cool feeling!

    Sometimes yes, but it seems to have gotten worse, just now the two first fingers on my left hand fell asleep (no feeling), it goes away if I just shake my hand.
    I'm wondering if heavy lifting is doing something and I'm gonna pay big when I get to be like 70.
    Cool

    Wow, you must have a really hard time playing with yourself when that happens.

    Yeah...That happens to me also...
    When I sleep on my side with my head resting on my extended arm...
    Totally numb...MY ARM!!!!!!(before somebody jumps on that one)
    Cutting the blood circulation to the hand,I guess...



    So what I'm saying is,that you pro'lly can eliminate heavy lifting being the cause,I just don't do heavy wifting...

    I happens in both, never had it happen in the toes.
    I've never had a physical so I don't know if I have low blood pressure, don't think so though.

    Sounds like it may be normal but I had it happen last night and it was painful enough to wake me up.
    Cool

    Does it happen while awake or just when you're sleeping?

    IF awake....are you sitting or standing when it tingles?

    It just happened 20 min ago while I was standing and typing at the computer, the first two fingers on my left hand.

    Most of the time its at night while sleeping.

    If it's happening in the middle of the day I'd say it might be a pinched nerve and something to see your Dr. about. At night you could be just sleeping on it...but this doesn't sound like it.

    Does it feel like lost circulation?

    It could be some minor nerve damage. My right wrist got messed up a while back, and in certain positions, the nerve would always get pinched... which made the right hand side of my hand go numb for a few days. You should be able to tell if its nerve related or not, the sensation is slightly different from regular circulation problems.
