Patients wake up with a numb hand especially in the night; there is numbness in palmar side (outer hand) of radial half (the half near the thumb) of the thumb, middle finger, ring finger.
Weakness in tenar muscle or atrophy may be present. Phalen test and Tinel’s sign may be positive. Sensorial symptoms may imitate c6 or c7 radiculopathy.
