3 nerves(ulnar,mediano,radiale) start from spina to hands,when they are in tension stop blood circulation.you need someone who knows where to put hands(finger) between scapola and release them.not muscle massage,but nerve massage .15 min every two days 10 12 times.you can even do yourself with ball massage.I had the same.it takes some time to solve the problem

Is it hand numbness or arm?
How old are you?
Have you an history of representative motion activities? For example do you work on a computer or driving nails by hand or using a impact driver?
Arm is a much bigger deal than hand. If it is just hand there is a strong probability that it is carpal tunnel syndrome. Red pointer's idea of the wrist splint is good along with your favorite anti-inflammatory. If it persists for more than a couple days get your ass to a doctor. Nerve impingement issues are no joke.

It sounds like you could have nerve impingement in the brachial plexus. I had your symptoms to a tee including elbow pain. After multiple diagnostic tests a nerosurgeon suggested spinal fusion. It seemed an extreme solution. My damage “radiculopathy” was exacerbated by mountain biking and playing squash. Your issue as Okkiteboarder mentioned maybe due to sleeping position. I would suggest mountain biking especially downhill and looking up at your kite are contributing factors.

Try not to put so much stress on the C7 area of your neck. I quit downhill riding and squash. It changed my life. 14 years no issues.
