You ever wake up to your hand being completely dead and unable to move, and for a minute you think “this is the end, it’ll never work again”? What causes that?

  1. When one of your limbs, or part of it, “falls asleep” it is because the nerves to it were compressed in some way. That pins and needles feeling is your nerve endings shooting off random signals back to your nervous system.

  2. Sometimes if I have an arm hanging over the bed it’ll go numb. It could just be due to weaker circulation as you get older. Once I move it and feel the blood pump to it easier all the feeling comes back in like 10 seconds (though it feels super weird).

  3. lol I’ve woken up with my arm asleep and wrapped around my head so I couldn’t feel my arm when I woke up so I look over to see what the fuck is going on and my fuckn arm wasn’t there! Your mind jumps to bad conclusions mighty quick

  4. I fell asleep in a hot car a few years back and rested on the armrest in a way that made part of my forearm numb permanently. I’m sure I could get surgery to decompress the nerve but it’s not bothersome and gives me a nice null spot to rest my arm on without ever feeling pain.
