I have pain in my right hand that wakes me up 3 to 7 times a night. I have to sit up and hold it strait down to get some relief. It feels like a lack of blood flow. I have been seeing a lot of doctors with no solutions yet. I have had blood test, x-rays, carpel tunnel test, nerve damage test, and a mri on my neck. Still the doctors do not know what is wrong. It is brought on by using my hands and arms a lot. It will affect my left hand also but mostly my right due to the fact I am right handed. I have more test to do and if I get a answer I will post it. If any one has this problem please help. It hurts and is getting very costly to try and find a answer.

You might have cubical tunnel syndrome. The ulnar nerve is pinched at the elbow. I have it in both arms. If you can, sleep with braces that straighten your arms at night.
There is surgery available for it.

I was going to suggest what Couchtater said - try wearing a hand/wrist brace at night. If you can wear it some during the day too that's even better. I have a painful wrist sometimes and the brace (night and/or day) really helps.
