Numbness in your arm, wrist, and hand is fairly common. It’s when that numbness persists, or pain is involved, that you may have some kind of underlying issues. When there is damage, irritation, or compression in one of your nerves in your arm, neck, or wrist, this can cause a certain level of hand numbness. Damage to one of your nerves in the neck can also result in numbness and pain along your entire arm and wrist.
Many times, tingling or numbness in the hand and wrist are a result of carpal tunnel syndrome. Injury is also a common cause of having unresponsiveness in your arm, wrist, or hand areas. Other causes of this condition can include:
- Tendon pain
- Repetitive motion syndrome
- Writers cramps
- Trigger finger
