Some possible causes of a tingling feeling in the right hand are lack of movement, frostbite, migraine, nerve damage and diabetes, notes Healthline. The most common reason for a tingling sensation in the right hand is because a person slept on the arm, which causes a lack of blood circulation.
Frostbite is caused by the freezing of the skin and in addition to a tingling sensation is also accompanied by redness and can result in permanent damage. Nerve damage affects the nerves in your brain and spinal cord and results in the tingling in a person's hands, states WebMD. Diabetes is another cause of tingling in the right hand, because high blood sugar levels can also damage a person's nerves.
