Thanks for your query.

Cause of numbness could be due to nerve compression or deficiency of vit b12. Through clinical evaluation is required to reach the diagnosis. taking methylcobalamin supplements will be helpful.To exactly diagnose this problem, you need a MRI scan. Momentarily, take daily supplementation of Vit B2,B6 & B12 to suppress the symptoms of numbness in hands.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
