This is another thing that has occured to me. Many years ago I was to the point that I either couldn't pickup things or would drop them Really pissed me off when I dropped a good cup of coffee. They put me in a half cast at the time. At times I have worn the exact prace that you have desribed. This is the first time I have had the numbness though. I still could use the fingers but they were just like sticks.
StrangeDiva submitted this idea :
Okie, I'm not discounting nerve entrapment or anything of the sort. BUT: Indes, middle and thumb going numb while sleeping or waking up. With arm pain going up the arm or down the arm is usually and indication of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. I have CTS and have had both hands worked on. I couldn't hardly move my first three fingers some days when I woke up and had to wear hand braces for a while so you might want to try that first.. you can get them at any walgreens or rite aid or walmart it's a wrist brace that goes down from the hand to the lower part of the wrist and has a rigid portion from the palm of the hand to below the wrist keeping it in the correct position for typing etc in order to relieve the symptoms.
Maybe something like:
Hopefully this helps I know what waking up like that is like.. it's annoying to me anymore even after surgeries I still have issues.

Now my arm is starting to hurt. This is something totally seperate from my other health problems. Tonight my neck and head are killing me as well. It makes me think there might be some nerve problem in my neck.
