Consistent numbness and tingling in right hand, difficulty in bending fingers. Any suggestions?

I am a healthy 46 year old female. The past two weeks I have been waking up with numbness in my right hand . It takes a good ten minutes before I can really bend my fingers. Then it is better...throughout the day my right arm will sometimes tingle and a few pains...but inconsistent. Any suggestions? Also, my right hand is colder than my other hand.

Hello kimberly.noey , greetings from

I have been through your case scenario and would like to know your other co-morbid conditions . Rarely people with diabetes or early neuropathy may have such similar complaint. Also you may not have proper sleeping habits and you might suffer from temporary nerve palsies. If it gets better as day increases then it can be attributed to the temporary nerve palsy. However if you are seeing your symptoms are gradually increasing It's better to consult with your primary physician. Hope I have been able to clear your doubts. Take care.
