numbness of hand

i have numbness in my one hand, what does this mean??
Response from Dr. Boyle
It could mean many things, from a mononeuritis (a condition involving a single nerve in your hand from such things as carpal tunnel syndrome, trauma, etc.), to a neuropathy secondary to HIV or medications (especially the "d" drugs: d4T, ddI, ddC), to a viral infection, to a variety of other, less common causes. Ask your doctor to evaluate it; this is something that requires a bit more history and an exam to properly diagnose. Brian Boyle, M.D., J.D.
