Arm Falling Asleep At Night Dangerous
Tight clothing?: Be careful with the clothing you wear to bed. It appears that you are compressing your nerves under your armpit. Pressing on these nerve bundle can cause loss of feeling, loss of the ability to use your arms and a "pins and needles" feeling. Usually when you remove the pressure the feeling returns to your arms, sometime with a burning pain. Seek help if this continunes.

Aching arms during the day and then at night they are constantly falling asleep with pain after. It doesn't matter what position I'm in.
Pinched nerves: If this problem has been happening for awhile I would suggest you seek help from a neurologist for nerve conduction studies to see where your nerves are being compressed.
45/f. Arm & hand pain while sleeping. Also wake up w/ arms tingling from arms falling asleep during night. Pain also wakes me up at night.?
Possible Carpal Tun: There are other possibilities, but the most likely cause for your symptoms is carpal tunnel syndrome. This is the result of compression of the median nerves at the wrists and it is common for people to wake up to "shake out the numbness." I would recommend that you see a neurologist, but while you are waiting you can ice the wrists, try otc ibuprofen, and buy carpal tunnel splints for nighttime.
Rarely I wake up at night with rectal pain. Recently I had it and it was extremely painful. I felt nauseous, light headed, my arms started falling asleep. I used prep h and that helped as well as a hot shower. Why would arms tingle? Wasn't hypervnt
Abnormal unrelated: You have nocturnal rectal pain. That is abnormal. It wakes you up and that is abnormal. You either have hemorrhoids or you have constipation. So record you bowel movements (how many and how often per day) and your diet (what are you eating and drinking). This should be treated. You should see your doctor with this history. Unrelated is that you are probably sleeping on your arms.
It's not normal: Most commonly people's arms or legs "fall asleep" after they have been resting in a position that compresses the sensory nerves to the respective area (s). If this is happening when your not in particular positions that are "squeezing" on your arms and/or legs, then follow up with your doctor.
Shoulder has been hurting when I serve and hit at vball. When my arm goes back it hurts. Yesterday when I was hitting my arm kept like falling asleep?
Instability: Your symptoms are classic for the development of instability in the shoulder. Over head activities such as volleyball serving and throwing can stretch or even tear some of the stabilizing structures in the shoulder causing the symptoms you are describing. An MRI is often of assistance to verify the specific structure involved. Based on that, physical therapy can potentially be of benefit.
Some nights I get this Shocking pain in my left arm. Everytime I doze off to sleep, it's like it knows I'm falling asleep and it just wakes wakes me u?
Sounds like...: This sounds like a hypnic jerk, which is nothing to be concerned about. Typically these occur as you are transitioning from wake in to sleep. Be sure you are getting a normal amount of sleep nightly/regular sleep wake schedule, as that can often decrease the frequency of these. Http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/hypnic_jerk.
It depends: It largely depends on what portions of your arms keep "falling asleep" and what exactly you mean by that term. Start by discussing this with your primary care physician.
See below: It could be something as simple as hyperventilation, but more serious conditions are possible too. Make an appointment to see your doctor to discuss these issues.

Am feeling my heartbeat in my legs and arms very strongly. IT s keeping me from falling asleep.. what could this possibly be?
I just got bloodwork done two weeks ago, and ever since then I'm finding the arm has been falling asleep randomly and feeling numb. Is this normal?
Did you have a test: For arterial blood gasses (ABG's) for some reason? Almost all lab is is drawn from a very superficial arm vein and there should be no chance of affecting significant nerves or arteries that would make your arm go numb. ABG's, though, are drawn from deeper arteries and this test can rarely cause numbness. Since it's been 2 weeks, I would call whoever drew your test to discuss the problem.See 1 more doctor answer
