I Have a Tricky Question For Anyone Who's Interested!!

Okay, the situation is this: late at night a young woman is in the state of semi-wakefulness (though still conscious and aware) and she feels like her hands are lying with the palms face up, but she knows that her palms are face down. Now let me clarify, what I mean is that her hands actually feel like they are resting on their backs, but she can look down and see clearly that the hands are not laying in such a position and that it wouldn't be possible for them to be. There is no pain, or any other signs that something is wrong. It has happened two or three times before.
So my theory is that the nerves of her hands become "confused" and start sending signals backwards, if you like. Does anyone know anything that would help me understand this more? Or if it is a symptom of carpal tunnel syndrome that isn't commonly known? Would much appreciate the help! :) thanks!!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This is related to subconscious. Its not due to carpal tunnel syndrome.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
