Has this problem gotten better once you were up an awake? I wonder if you were just laying on them wrong and lost circulation, or if you have some sort of pinched nerve.

I have this problem frequently at night time & have had the nerve conduction tests done which have shown I have Carpel Tunnel Syndrome in both hands.
My hands have also felt more tight & the skin is shiny.
I sometimes have to hang my arm out over the side of the bed to ease it.
Perhaps you should visit your doctor.

I know exactly what you are talking about. I have the same thing. For me, it has never gone away, I just have gotten used to it. I still wake up in the middle of the night and I have to move my arms and hands to make them better. I had the nerve conduction test done and it showed carpan tunnel syndrome (sp). I also have the same symptoms in my feet.
I recently started mentioning this to my doctor again to see if I can get the test done again (I had it done about 2 years ago). You should do the same. Ask your doctor to send the test and take it from there. They can also do MRI to see if it has anything to do with your spine.
I hope this helps you.

I get it too, and I'm not sleeping on my hands either. I also get it when I have my arms on the arm rests of a chair for too long. I have no answers, just commisserating.

My 2 cents worth....I have had this 3-4 times lately too...I asked the rheumatologist about it just yesterday....he said it could be carpel tunnel syndrome....if it keeps up or gets more frequent that I should have my family doctor send me for some nerve test....

I had it only once in my left foot (but it was during the daytime)...and that was after I had spoken to my rheumatologist about my hands....or I would have asked that too....maybe someone here can tell us more? There must be some other explanation as well. Like you, I think it sheds another light on the subject too.

I'm going to have to mention this to my doctor again. There are so many things going on with us that sometimes it feels weird to bring another symptom to the table, so you just kearn to live with it and go on.
I also had neurological test done because they were looking for peripheral neuropathy but it didn't come up. It would be nice to take something that will make the tingle go away.
