Pins and needles in Hands during sleep.

14 posts in this topic

Recently I have been getting pins and needles when in my sleep, its if one hand is raised slightly depending on how I sleep, when I wake the hand feels numb and after moving the fingers around the blood supply is then almost instant and the feeling quickly goes away.

I never ever get this in my legs or feet but just my hands.

I feel this is getting slightly worse as I age (38), I have felt this in my hands when I lie down and use my phone (for example) my hands raised to hold the phone up and I slowly begin to feel it, but worse during sleep,

Any suggestions for pins and needles?

Thanks.

I'm 42 and what you have described is EXACTLY what I get. Tbh I think its always been the same, I just thought it is normal. I haven't noticed it change in any way with age and until I read your post I've never thought about why it might be.

Ive always felt the phone example I gave when laying down, it begins after about 10 mins holding the phone up, but as I am awake I can just wriggle and flex my fingers and this puts it off a while longer, but when asleep its bad.

Nah, Perhaps you've noticed it more as you are thinking about it as you have an eye to your health whilst on cycle. Are you tall? I'm 6.3, so wondering if that might be a factor. Heart further away from hands if that makes sense

sometimes if i lay a certain way ill wake up and my whole arm will be numb.

When I first started training I somehow managed to wake up with both arms numb a few times, which made moving to fix the problem weird/difficult! No idea why it happened but I'm glad it doesn't now :).

Same thing happens to me, I'm 21. I usually sit up and have to shake my arms violently then drop back to sleep, can happen regularly though, makes sleeping very difficult sometimes.

Often caused by compromising a nerve by the position you're in, or blood supply for the same reason. If you pinch of the blood supply to your hand by grasping the wrist with the other hand it will cause pins and needles, as an example.
