What would cause hands to be numb every morning?

Answer

Numbness in the hand is often caused by some form of compression affecting one of the nerves or a branch of nerves in the arm and wrist. According to the Mayo Clinic, it also is caused by damage or irritation of these nerves.

Diabetes is a disease that can cause issues with numbness in the hands and feet, especially. That is because it affects the peripheral nerves. Numbness in the hands may be the result of problems in the spinal cord or brain, in rare circumstances. However, it will be accompanied by a loss in function or weakness of the hand or arm. Hands going numb will rarely be caused by any life-threatening disorders, so it is important to not get too stressed by this issue. Some other causes of numbness in hands include chronic alcohol use, Lyme Disease, HIV/AIDS and Cervical Spondylosis.
