Sleepy fingers

Dear Dr. What could be the possible cause for waking up and feeling that finges in my left hand are " dead"  " sleepy" ? Only after moving them the " life"  comes back!

Dear Anonymous
It could be caused by Carpal tunnel syndrome - pressure on the median nerve that runs in a tunnel through the wrist can cause these symptoms. It can be treated by using anti-inflammatory medication, getting physiotherapy, yoga, or surgery in persistent cases.
