almost every night I wake up because of numbness in my hands. I dint know if I just sleeping on them but I don\'t think so. And after I wake up I just let my hand drop off the bed and it stops being numb and goes back to normal in about 10-25 secs
And i dont know if it will help but for the last year or so my abdominal are has been hurting
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the numbness that you are having. These type of sensations are called parasthesia. They are common in diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidism. They can also be due to peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency, carpal tunnel syndrome or malnutrition. Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the sensations are gone or not.
In case the symptoms persist, then please get an examination done from a physician.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
