Thanks for posting your query.
Sudden loss of feeling in the left hand can happen due to a nerve compression or a minor stroke.
However there are different factors to be considered while commenting on the cause of this problem.
Since I do not have all the details and a privilege to examine you my assessment is severely limited.
I would advise you to consult your neurologist. He would be the best person to guide further diagnostic workup and treatment.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
