Hello Alan Avak!

Following are the possible reasons for the arms to asleep at night:

  • Lack of vitamin B. It is most common in older adults and people who drink excessively.
  • Fluid Preservation which might be caused by many things like ingestion of high amount of salt and Fluctuations in hormone level.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome which is caused when the median nerve is pinched or compressed.

Thanks

It may be due to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It is a medical condition due to the compression of median nerve as it travels through the wrist at the Carpal Tunnel. Sleeping in a wrist splint is a nonsurgical treatment to this problem.

You could have something called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome which is when the median nerve is being compressed or which. Doing the same type of motions over and over again before you fall asleep can trigger your arm to fall asleep at night.
