I fell asleep somehow with a hand under my head. When I woke up, I wanted to scratch my leg. I began to pull my hand towards her, move my muscle, but my hand is gone. I was scared at first - where is my hand: D. Then I saw that she was lying on her head. I absolutely did not feel it. He took it in another and began to shake, the hand came to life. At the same time, by the way, there was no pain at all. Apparently she lay there all night, but nothing terrible happened. Nothing happened at all, the hand also functions without any consequences.
and can the hand become numb so that there will be consequences? Let's say I lay down in an uncomfortable position, drunk, and did not feel the moment when I stopped feeling it?
Of course I’m not asking this for myself, one friend is interested. I don’t drink.
It happens that at night I wake up from this and not only lift, but even cannot move. Numbness from the forearm to the fingertips and a strange aching sensation (probably from the fact that the whole thing was squeezed for a long time). It is necessary to lift the numb with the second hand, and move it slightly to the side. Only after that does the hand begin to "come to life".
Numbness occurs due to an incorrect position, as a result of which the synovial vaginas are infringed. Vessels and nerves pass through these sheaths. Blood ceases to flow to the "restrained" part of the body, innervation is "disturbed" and, as a result, numbness occurs. When you shake / squeeze / change the position of a part of the body, blood flow is restored, as well as signaling along the nerves (hence the tingling sensation).
Usually, hand numbness occurs due to incorrect posture. The arteries are squeezed, which provokes a violation of blood flow.
When blood moves through the vessels, the tissue is enriched with oxygen, including other substances necessary for its full existence. When squeezing, for example, when sitting or lying incorrectly, numbness may begin and very unpleasant pain sensations appear.
In cases where numbness appears due to an uncomfortable posture, blood vessels or nerves are compressed, that is, a person simply I had my hand in bed, if this does not happen all the time, then there is no need to worry. But if your hands feel numb during sleep all the time, every night, interfere with sleep and cause anxiety, a doctor's consultation and examination are simply necessary.
To restore blood supply, you need to shake your hands and vigorously clench and unclench your fists several times. Then stretch your fingers. If numbness happens in bed, you need to roll over on your back, raise your hands up and vigorously clench - unclench your fists several times. Then lower your arms along your torso and repeat clenching your fists. It is useful to stretch your hands during the day and roll balls into your palms. If the symptom recurs frequently, it is necessary to see a doctor and undergo treatment.
