sleeping problems

ok dont laugh at this one

SERIOUS ISSUE

i go to bed

fall asleep

wake up a couple of hours later after laying on my arm

arm is dead, white in colour and very heavy

20 minutes later it 'comes round'

major pains with pins and needles

PROBLEM BIT

started losing feelings in fingers throughout the day as a result and have little to no sensation in the tips of my fingers

MOST WOULD SAY

dont sleep on and lay in another position

cant do this as i always end up laying on it without knowing

DO I?

hand cuff my arm to the other side of the bed?
employ a lady to monitor and move accordingly?

i am stuck for suggestions and becoming increasingly concerned for the future use of my arm

    Sleep on the other Arm for a while.

    TT mate, you need to find a lady to wrap your arm around .

    Don't ask me for advice on that though - women run a mile from me .

    But seriously, I have had similar problems as I toss and turn throughout the night. I try to stretch out my arms wide and above my head (removed the headboard lol), but sometimes I find it avoidable. Wish I could be more help, perhaps invest in a straightjacket and some restraint cuffs .

    not as much anymore but even when i have small amounts this happens

    i can now stick a pin into my finger with very little pain, not a hobby i would advocate but i was simply explaining the issue to my mother, who like most, found it amusing although i dont

    sleep right on the end of the bed so that f you tried to turn over you'd fall out of bed

    or sleep normally and put something in the bed so that if you tried to roll over it would make it uncomfortable

    First thing i personally would suggest would be to take half an asprin every day for a while to keep blood flowing nicely.

    Sounds stupid but maybe you could actually cuff your Arm to something for a while until your body gets use to the fact of not having to lie on it??

    Maybe your body is stuck in this routine and always ends up on top of the arm. Move your bed, get a harder mattress, sleep with your head at the other end, sleep on the floor for a bit, prop yourself up with pillows like in hospital, tie something round the offending arm so when your weight is on it, its immediately annoying and you automatically shift. Can't think of anything else sorry.

    That sounds like the condition that people who use vibrating machinery (no jokes please) get. IE the machines that roadworkers use to dig up the tarmac etc. Apparantly it can get progressively worse until the damage is permanent.

    either tie this arm to your waist (wear a belt and loosely tie your wrist to the belt) or find some other way of stopping yourself sleeping on it.

    ppl who snore stop themselves lieing on their back by sewing a golf ball into their shirt on their back, making it v uncomfy to lie on your back, even if u shift during the night- perhaps you could try doing this with your arm#?

    Shouldnt have to e for to long though, just until your body gets use to the fact of not having to lie the way you do.

    I had this same problem for a few weeks. I'd wake up, having been lying on my arm, and it would be completely dead; from finger tips to shoulder I would have no sensation for about five minutes. It was completely dead like it wasn't part of me. Scared the crap out of me the first few times. I'd have to pick up the dead weight of the affected arm using my other hand and shake it for about a minute. I don't remember any effects during the day. I think it just stopped happening in the end.

    If you're sleeping on your side maybe put a pillow between your knees. It might make it easier for your sleeping self to turn over to the other side during the night.

    not wanting to sound alarmist but - Seems to me like progresive nerve damage m8 obv you are not allowing the blood to flow hence the pins and needles sensation and the whiteness in colour of skin .. now you are loosing sensation which could mean nerve damage - even more so with the extreme parts of your body ie finger tips .... I would get it checked out at the Docs first maybe they can then give you ideas of how to get out of the habit

    what ever you decide I would certainly get it checked out
