I wake up and my hand is completely numb!! i can't feel a thing!!!?

It is probably because i was sleeping on it and blood doesn't circulate though my hand, but i get so fu***** scared when it happens. If i sleep on it for a long time, will there be serious consequences??
Update: what i really want 2 know if there will be any serious consequences if i sleep on it too long??
