Data Entry Job – SCAM!

Hands go numb when I sleep.
Question, I have a one level fusion in my neck and I forget which level, sorry, but also had a one level lumbar fusion at l5-s1 which ended up giving me some pretty bad arthritic stenosis at l4/15 causing some pain my foot and such.
For the last 4 or 5 months I would say, I wake up a few time a week with one of my my hands completely numb, never both but one or the other. I have to shake it and get it moving for a minute or so before feeling returns. I just tought it was from sleeping on it wrong, I tend to bend my wrsits when I sleep. I a also use a computer all day at work then at home too. So I was thinking maybe carpal tunnel.
I never heard of people having their entire hand go numb from the c spine, only certain parts, like fingers or thumb. I used to get a numb thumb before surgery. But I thought I would ask any c spine folks if they think there is a chance this is c spine related of am I just sleeping on it wrong/ maybe carpel tunnel. Again, its the entire hand up to the wrist and I have to shake it for a minute or so to get it moving.
