My Arm And Legs Fall Asleep A Lot
When i sleep on my side the arm and leg that are on bottom fall asleep but wake up when i move without pins and needles. Cause?
Nerve impingement: This can be temporary like when you rest your arm in the wrong position but could also be more serious like related to a nerve bocked by a bone spur cutting off circulation/nerve nutrients to the rest of the tissue. If this only happens during sleep, it is probably positioning and can take minues to even near and hour to return to 'normal.' look at the support of your bed/pillow first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When I'm laying in bed at night and falling asleep, my shoulder will jerk and my body feels kind of weird like its vibrating, feet cramps sometimes.
Some times while sitting, my lower leg and foot gets numb.is it because of excessive nocturnal emissions?also my hands get numb when I wake up
They only cause...: Wet dreams, also called nocturnal emissions, only cause underwear stains... and nothing else. Therefore, no symptoms, disorders, or diseases may be blamed on nocturnal emissions. Numbness here and there, in young healthy individuals, after sleeping or sitting for a while, may be caused by not moving enough (which can cause pressure on a nerve for a while). There are also other causes of numbness. ...Read more

Pressure on nerves: from the sleep position is most likely at your age. This is not normal, so you should experiment with using pillows under your knees, sleeping on your stomach etc. and also changing sleep position from time to time. If the condition continues or worsens, you should have an examination to be sure that there is not something going on in the spine or in the blood vessels. ...Read more

Probably diet: Sounds strange? The brain and nervous system are highly dependent on relatively low calorie intake with sufficient vitamin concenration. Too many calories, particularly simple sugars and sweeteners creates a relative vitamin deficiency. It is, in fact, like "choking" a car engine. See my blog "oxygen the spark of life" that you can google. ...Read more

Arm numbness: The feeling of falling asleep is like numbness. Sometimes this happens during sleep because there are no position changes. Movements of the arms tend to alleviate numbness sometimes. This is especially true in carpal tunnel syndrome. Although I cannot make a diagnosis based on the information I have so far, perhaps a doctor visit, more information, or nerve conduction testing would help. ...Read more

Recently I started to have tingling mainly right arm/hand, thumb seems numb, and my feet fall asleep fairly quick. Muscles twitch a bit. Any ideas?
Pinched nerve: The right arm/hand/thumb numbness/tingling may be caused by a pinched nerve in your neck, which then sends symptoms down the arm. A carpal tunnel syndrome could also cause similar symptoms. The feet falling asleep and the twitching muscles would most likely be unrelated conditions that would require further evaluation. ...Read more

Consider this:: Waking up with numb hands often suggests carpal tunnel syndrome, you should also consider this. Iron deficiency usually responds pretty well to iron therapy.

Arm Asleep?: Most of the time this is caused by simple pressure on the nerve that innervates the arm. Pressure on the nerve will reduce or stop the blood flow to the nerve, and the numbness, tingling and pain ensues. It will likely wake you us, you will roll off the arm, blood will be supplied to the nerve, and within a few minutes, the nerve will be functioning normally. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
