Patient

Q: My right hand falls asleep several times a night and when I am typing on my phone. Just started about three months ago.

Doctor

A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.

We are here to help you on this medical health advice platform.
This frequently happens due to phone overuse. When you keep your hand in one position for a long time, you frequently get these symptoms.
I would advice you to minimize the use of mobile phone. Later this may turn even into Carpel tunnel syndrome.
In case your problem persists, then you would require to get a X-Ray Cervical Spine to rule out any evidence of Cervical Disc compression that can also cause these symptoms.
Share my opinion with your doctor.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
