There are many nerves in the hand that allow you to feel something as it touches your skin.
Numbness is usually a sign that one or a few of these nerves are being pinched.The nerve can be pinched a few places as it travels to your hand, such as in the wrist, at the elbow in the “funny bone” area or even in the neck.
Numbness in the hand should be evaluated by a physician. The longer the numbness is present, the more likely permanent nerve damage is happening.
So it is important to figure out where the nerve is being injured so that the problem can be solved.
