Not sure: What the question actually is, but it isn't uncommon for someone to "sleep in the wrong position" and wake up with an arm or leg or both, painful, numb, and/or hard to move. This usually occurs from something referred to as a compressive/entrapment neuropathy - too much pressure on a nerve. But it's also possible that your damaged some of the muscle or tendons in the area too. ...Read more

Why could cause my arm fall asleep while driving or doing normal activities?

A number of things: If it is both arms would consider whether it could be a neuropathy or a vascular problem.

Bring up with sleep specialist in that situation so that testing can be performed. ...Read more

Nerve impingement: Can be caused by being sandwiched between two spinal bones, pressed by a bulging. It can cause muscle spasm and back pain. Prevention treatment is always recommended. This condition must be professionally managed. See interventional pain management specialist for definitive diagnosis and management. It is the same as a pinched nerve. ...Read more

I am getting soreness in my left arm and chest only last a min but ups blood press. Not during activity but sometimes at night or first thing, concern?

Yes: Without knowing your specific medical history and risk factors, it is hard to say but at your age, (possible) anginal pain needs to be evaluate. I recommend seeing your physician soon to have at least an ekg done and possibly a stress test. Of course it could be something nonthreatening like acid relux, muscle pull...But without evaluation, you will never know. Good luck. ...Read more

What could cause me to have upper arm pain in both arms mostly at night? Pain that keeps me awake. I'm in good shape and doubt due to activity.

Neck: To involve both arms, unless there really is problem in each arm separately, it is best to explain from the root that goes to both arms and that's the neck. Have your neck examined. When you lay down, the position of your spine changes and could be compressing the nerves that go to both arms. I wish you the best. ...Read more

It's not uncommon: During or after any kind of lung infection to have inflammation of the pleura (the outer membrane surrounding the lungs). The pleura are very pain-sensitive.

After activity, I had a shooting pain down my left arm, pulsing in two fingers and lightning like pain in both jawsides that went away quickly. Heart?

Be calm and cool: Sharp shooting pains which are transient are not from your heart. So you should not worry. It is not uncommon for healthy people to have an occasional sharp pain which is transient, so it is of no consequence. Sometimes it is worth being patient and wait to worry. If the pains are due to something serious they will come back and be persistent. Then it may be a cause for some worry, not right now! ...Read more

Upper back pain on left side that also causes left arm pain above elbow. I fell 7 months ago and primary doc says muscle. Can my back muscle hurt this long? I can not do physical activities bc of pain

Upper back pain: If the pain has been ongoing for the past seven months and persists despite physical therapy then it is likely not a pulled muscle. Pain that limits physical activities warrants imaging of the cervical and thoracic spine. See a spine specialist to find the cause and to develop a treatment plan. ...Read more
