What Causes Numbness In The Right Arm While Sleeping Regardless Of Position?
I have a history of both stroke and neuropathy. I am a 54 yr old woman.
I have read your message.
I think I can help you.
the symptoms of the queries are quite suggestive of possible radiculopathy.
in this condition the radical or nerve coming out of vertebral column is getting compressed due to which you feel the numbness of the arm.
I really feel you will need to meet a Neurologist to examine you and confirm the diagnosis subsequent to which an MRI of the spine may be needed.
meanwell make sure that you are not sleeping with a pillow that is too high because that will increase the compression of the nerve.
if actually found to be a radiculopathy you will need a prescription for medicines like gabapentin and Pregabalin along with physiotherapy.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible and in case you have any further questions regarding this complaint feel free to ask follow on query.
best of luck.
