Re: Arm goes numb/dead while sleeping
considering the full impact of this level of totally dead 'numbing" you are getting, it seriously NEEDS to be checked into for the possible cause. have you seen any doc about his yet for some evaluation and some testing done? if this were just one arm,it could be something more to do with posistion, but since this is actually occuring bilaterally, you really need to look at the spinal as the possible 'central' problem. there can be many possible spinal level issues a person can have that are more in the "middle' of the spine vs off to more one side that would show up as what you are experiencing. i would make an appt to see your primary for an eval and a possible referral for at least a C spine level MRI(the lower c spine and upper t 1 level are what actually innervate our arms). you really just do not know what is actually going on inside your own body anywhere really til you get that much deeper 'look' inside any given area. trust me on that one.
are you having ANY actual pain anywhere at all, espescially in the neck area or down either arm or into your fingers? **
