This is only my opinion: see a chiropractor. I wake up often with my hands asleep, and it's time to see my chiropractor. It's my shoulders & neck that go out & it affects my arms. I've got tendonitis, which stresses out my shoulders. It goes back & forth. After an adjustment, I'm as good as new! (I wear a brace for the tendonitis to help with pain.)
Like I said, only an opinion. You are not alone in experiencing painful/irritating symptoms. A chiropractor happens to be my solution.
Hope you find a solution & feel better soon!

I get a pinched nerve that does that every now and then, I agree with seeing a chiro or a massage therapist.
It's always worse when I lay down.

Ditto..... ( "join the club we've got jackets", as Shrek would say ) learn a few hand / wrist stretches that helps a little bit.

Ah yes, there are many of us with various finger/hand/wrist/elbow/shoulder/neck/back ailments in this business! I suffer from De Quervain's Tenosynovitis (tendinitis) in my left wrist and have to wear a splint a lot (especially in bed). The only thing that shifts it for me is lots of rest (impossible when you've got a full order book!). It does worry me sometimes, because after only 4 years of cake making, I'm wondering how long my hands will put up with it.

I think you should go and see your dr, who will advise you on the best course of action. Good luck!

Night pain with paraesthesia can indicate carpal tunnel syndrome. See your doctor for assessment.

Life's too short to make cake pops.

Mine was carpal tunnel. I had surgery on the right hand and it is gone. Before the surgery though I wore wrist splints to bed and still do on my left hand when I have been using it a lot. You can buy the splints at WalMart. I hope you feel better!
