I wake up every morning and both my hands are numb. Im not sleeping on them, the are resting at my side. I also have an issue with being slightly dizzy at times during the day. Not sure if they are related. Why could this be?

Brief Answer: Causes to numbed hands and feeling dizzy... Detailed Answer: Hi, I read your medical history and could say that I need more of your medical data: - your age - your gender - if you are suffering with high blood pressure - if you are dealing with diabetes or hypercholesterolemia Waking up with both hand numbed could be because of: - arthritis (mostly apparent in the morning, when the hands have not moved for all night) - your work type (perhaps your job is more likely to be related to typing or using hands) - any recent trauma or local injury you might have - lack of vitamins of group B Feeling slightly dizzy during the day could be related to: - type of job you do (might require sitting for too long or benting your head or body in front) - anemia (I suggest to do complete blood work to rule it out) - problems related to inner ear and otosclerosis (must consult ENT specialist) - oscillations in blood pressure (measure the blood pressure at the time you are having dizziness episode, record it and pass it to the doctor). - arthritis. I do not think your hands being numbed and dizziness are related. However, can be physically checked by your physician to get further evaluation. All the best! Dr.Alba
