Why does my arm fall asleep when I put it in front of my head laying down on my stomach? Is it normal?
Also why does my left arm feel like it wants to go to sleep when I fall asleep? Should I be worried?

When i sit a lot my backside startes to hurt what does that mean?

When i sit a lot my backside startes to hurt what does that mean?

Tissue compression,,: If you sit a lot or for a long time, you might start to hurt because you are compressing those tissues and the blood is not circulating to them as well. Therefore it would be wise to get up from time to time to allow those parts of your body to get the blood circulating to them. You might also develop hemorrhoids so if getting up does not help see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Maybe nerve issue: Perhaps it's the position that you are sleeping which cause the arm to go numb? Usually when the arm is open and out-stretched, it's more likely to cause nerve compression in the neck and shoulder region. I would still recommend you to see a doctor for check-up. You can try to enroll in the county health care system if there is one available in your county. It does offer cheaper medical costs. ...Read more
