Re: Woke up with top of head completely numb/weakness in left hand

Hi Steven,
Given your history, the scalp numbness could certainly be due to c-spine impingement and the left hand weakness due to the ulnar nerve entrapment.

If the hand thing happens again, or more importantly, if your hand still hasn't returned completely to "normal" (or what is normal for you) I would see my doc (orthopedist?) as soon as possible- it certainly sounds nerve related and if so, you want to nip whatever "it" is in the bud.
