Sometimes I will wake up and it won't be a pain but a very uncomfortable feeling in my right hand /wrist. It will stay until I shake my hand and keeps me up for hours. I try to pop my knuckles to maybe help but they won\'t pop. And suggestions or opinions on what this might be?

Welcome to e health forum.

Your symptoms could be due to musculoskeletal conditions like Carpal tunnel syndrome or nerve impingement issues.

These conditions can arise due to injury, repeated stressful activities, inflammation within the affected soft tissues, chronic medical conditions (rheumatism, autoimmune conditions, thyroid disorders, etc).

Consulting your primary care doctor or a orthopedic doctor, for a physical examination will help in making a proper assessment of the underlying condition.
