What causes my arms to fall asleep at night?

Winter Crane

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

Mehdi Khlif

It maybe caused by throttling blood by sleeping on it

Riley Chavarria

Is it both arms? Or left or right arm?
