Muscle cramps?: Generalized cramping due to metabolic or muscle issues would unlikely be triggered by positional changes. However if spasm involves primarily extensor muscles, then stretching them by flexion in the fetal position is likely to increase pain.

My right arm hurt me at nite when i go to bed it hurts so bad i can't sleep that good?

Arm pain at night?: I guess that would mean u are working hard during the day. It's unusual for a pain of this nature to occur at night only.

That : That sounds like an infectious or allergic cause. Certain infections such as ringworm can cause round marks. Also some allergic reactions can cause round lesions with clear centers.
