Thank you for writing to us.
I believe that you were sleeping on your arm. Sleeping on your arm can cause numbness of the hand and the palm. I suspect the nerve involved is the median nerve.
The numbness will go away in some time. And if it doesn't go away in 2 days, please see a Doctor for the diagnosis.
Hope this helps you.
