Sleeping fingers

02/21/2003

Question:

I frequently have tingling sensations in my fingers when I wake up. (Like when your foot "falls asleep" from lack of circulation). It is not from sleeping on my hand or arm, usually when I sleep on my back. I didn`t know where to ask this question. Can you help?

Answer:

I would recommend discussing this with your personal physician. You may also wish to try sending this to the Sports Medicine expert panel for their opinion.
