Nearly every night I wake up with a completely stone dead arm from lying on it. I have to lift it and shake it around with my other arm and bend/stretch/do guitar warmups for a few mins till the feeling comes back in waves of intense pain. I am pretty used to it by now, I sometimes don't wake up to do it, but I'm really annoyed and don't know why it is.

I have two theories, one is that cause I have very muscly arms and very low fat percentage, I have gross veins 'like power cables' I believe the cliche is. I guess this would make them easier to trap, but I thought it was arteries that needed to be trapped.

Other theory is that I tend to get it more on nights when I have worked out or boxed the previous day, and that I have higher blood pressure cause of the strain from this or something.

Basically does anyone know what the hell this is?

Thanks.

That happened to me once. I woke up at night, and I was like "What the hell am I lying on?" and so I reach over with my right arm and touch it, and it felt wicked weird. I didn't know what it was. Then I picked it up, and it ended up being my left arm. I couldn't feel it at all. Like, I couldn't even tell I was touching it. Pretty creepy, but pretty cool, cause I was just picking it up and dropping it, and I couldn't feel it.


But to answer your question, I think it might be that your sleeping on your arm (like I did) and cut off so much circulation that you can't feel it anymore.

yeah its called cutting the circulation off i believe... happens to me a lot ill wake up and my arm will be asleep and ill have to use my other arm to move it away haha

Which tv show is it where someone uses their dead arm to touch themselves down below so it feels like someone else.

Had me laughing.

It happens to me from time to time. Once I had it happen with both arms. That was pretty damn crazy.

I believe there is a techinique for that where you sit on your hand till it goes numb then jerk off like its a handjob from someone. Can't remember the specific name.


I know it is cutting of my circulation but I NEED my circulation. I don't want a blood clot of deep vein thromobosis, so I might go to the doctor, although you all have it too so maybe you should all as well.

Thats very unlikely to cause a thrombosis of any kind. But no harm in going to the doctors.

Never Mind The Buzzcocks mentioned it, I think.

It's called 'The Stranger'

yeah, that happened to me, except when i woke up, i turned over and it was resting on my neck. i was like ! but then it was only my arm......*phew*


but yeah, i doubt its anything a doctor needs to fix. you just need to sleep with your arms outstretched so you dont cut off the circulation.

yeah, im kinda surprised no one said this before. TS goes on and on about how muscular he is, and everyone else just wants to talk about masturbation.

Shame I didn't come on an hour ago after some punchbag work and take pics. I'll do one tomorrow but in the meantime I can show you an oldish nude guitar vid of myself. Can't really see much mainly in my hands.

I'm not a freakin monster but I knew it would be put down to being a fatass which I'm not, but being fat does cause people to stop breathing at night.

happens to me alot too and I dont have "muscly arms" or whatever...

What happens is you are not letting blood get to your arm, so when you wake up and touch you dont really feel anything...

I dont know if its harmful or whatever but its certainly not good..
