Could be lots of things but carpal tunnel syndrome springs to mind. Google it perhaps.
I've had the same thing & was told by a consultant that it was a 'pinched' nerve in my neck. I eventually had a cortisone injection in my neck, which stopped the pain, tingling & numbness in my arm & hand. Haven't had any problems since.

yep, could be many things. Certainly carpal tunnel is one possibility. I went through a time a good few weeks back when I woke every night with numbness in both hands & having been someone who has had surgery for carpal tunnel a good few years ago & twice in one hand!!! I thought, oh no, not this again but for some odd reason it just stopped and "touch wood" its a good few weeks since it last happened. one of life's mysteries I guess
it could be restless leg syndrom,or ms.it could be many differt things,so if it's making you worry please see your doctor.
