I just had a nerve conduction test done today to make sure I had no nerve damage as my hands wake up numb in the moring especially my little finger. When this happens my grip and hand strength is even weaker throughout the day. The neurologist said that I have no nerve damage but that I am bumping or pinching the nerves (especially the one near my elbow) when I sleep or through out the day which in turn causes the numbness. He also said that this is sometimes common with arthritis. Has anyone else experienced this numbness in the hands??
