Patient : My right hand falls asleep several times a night and when I am typing on my phone. Just started about three months ago.
Doctor :   Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you on this medical health advice platform. This frequently happens d ue 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.
