  • numbness

    I generally sleep on my back and if I have my hands laying on my chest or stomach they start to go numb in just a few minutes. It hasn't seemed to have caused me any problems besides being fairly uncomfortable.

    Anybody share this problem? Suggestions?

    Yes. And its even more awesome if you fall asleep with your arm above your head.

    Sleep on your side.

      Lol yeah. If my arms are above my head I'll wake up and have 0% feeling from the shoulder down. Kinda scary the first time it happened.

        I think my hands get numb when I rest them on my chest because nerves in my elbows are pressing on the mattress.

          I get that too after holding the book I'm reading in bed for several minutes. Did you just recently notice that happening to you?
          I thought it was normal.

            Had this issue for as long as I can remember. Not sure what's causing it or if it's considered a 'problem'. Maybe its because my hands are elevated (ie, above the heart) in that position.

              So it's not just the bed? Ever slept on a firmer bed?

              Could be an alignment thing. My right leg gets pins and needles ("falls asleep") if I sleep on one side of the bed, on my back, because of the dip in it and my hips being crooked.

              My hands go numb if I hold a book up while lying down to read. I fall asleep with my hands on my stomach all the time and don't have that issue, though.

                I get this no matter what position I sleep in. My thumb is the only that doesn't go numb and its called carpal tunnel. If I eat any gluten, its really bad. Dairy is bad but not nearly as bad.
