In brief: Nerve damage

The brachial plexus is a complex of nerves arising from the neck and innervating the upper back, and arm. This can be injured by puncture wounds, direct trauma or falling asleep when intoxicated with the arm over the edge of a chair. Many important functions are served by this set of nerves.
If you have concerns about this, see your doctor for evaluation and treatment if possible.
