What causes my arms to fall asleep at night?

If you are resting, or not moving, the blood may not be flowing properly through your body, hence it falls asleep. If it occurs, just move your arms a little

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
