In brief: You could be

sleeping on your arm all night, which is the most common cause for numbness.
If you have numbness when you start lying down, not just in the morning when you wake, then you may have a nerve impingement at the base of your neck, also called thoracic outlet syndrome. Please see a neurologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
