Severe finger numbness in morning

Wondering if anyone else gets severe numbness upon waking up I feel as if I could roll over onto my fingers as I’m sleeping and may not notice if they are bents in the wrong way , they take a while to return back to normal , I feel they’re so numb I can bend them and it does not hurt ..could I brake my fingers in my sleep ? 🤔 my family doctor kind of giggled at me she tells me it’s because I might be sleeping in a odd position causing the circulation to not flow properly ..

Today again i woke up to numb fingers! All day I'm trying to get my blood to flow better I'm pale ect. I'm going to try kalawalla! Found it on YouTube. I think I'm going to order it for sure!

Hi, I often wake with some level of "numbness". One trick I have that helps me is to wear a bed jacket or light cardigan or similar with pockets in. I then put my hands in the pockets as soon as I lie down. It doesn't remove the numbness completely, after all my hands can still escape and then my arms get in stupid positions, but it definitely makes things better for me. N xx

Yes, every day. I haven't found anything that helps yet

I wear cotton gloves in bed when my fingers are numb of a morning. I also suffer with Erythromelalgia and as those who have this know, it's night times that flares mainly happen. I can manage to remove my cotton gloves when I'm asleep if I start to flare during the night. I only know about taking off the gloves when I spot them thrown haphazardly on my bedside table in the morning.

I always keep a pair of the gloves on my bedside table for if or when I need them. I use the ones you get to keep moisturiser working on your hands from Avon. They also have cotton trainer type socks for moisturising feet too, I use them if my feet are going numb during the night.
