In brief: Neurology consult?
Occasionally sleeping on your back can put pressure on the ulnar crease ("funny bone") and compress the nerve causing discomfort in the area beyond.
If the bed is firm or if you have injuries involving those areas it may be more likely to occur. Certainly neck nerve compression - often due to arthritis or injury - can cause a radiculopathy (tingling and pain). Kinking your neck while reading?
