Poor go to sleep - do I have to worry?

of Tino »13 Jul 2007 8:49 am

Hi, my problem right now. When I lie down, I always sleep in my arms and so hard that it really hurts! Even when I lie on the sofa in front of the TV and cross my arms over my stomach, they fall asleep! I'm asleep anyway, no matter how I turn. Do you know that? What can you do about it? In terms of size, everything is the same.
Oh yes, I'm not a beginner, but I've never seen anything like it!

Do you take steroids if so, what kind of steroids .. on fabric they also fall asleep when I sleep. you shouldn't take any substance you should go to a doc .. which of course is mandatory anyway if you should use substances

no, no matter - everything as always, training, food. Supps only whey protein, multivitamin and magnesium.

Hello
I have the same thing, so I went to the doctor and he said that is because the higher muscle volume in the shoulder means that the arteries can be squeezed shut.
he said it doesn't matter ...

You must have misunderstood that. If the blood circulation were to be significantly interrupted, then the whole area would look like what we know when a finger is tightly "tied off".

I would rather orientate in this direction:

It can also be related to problems in the back muscles. I have quite severe scoliosis (curvature of the spine), which causes the muscles to the right of the spine to cramp. That's why I also do physiotherapy and my therapist can give me a massage, for example. Say 30 seconds in advance when my right arm will fall asleep. So maybe a visit to the orthopedic surgeon would also be appropriate.

Sounds more logical to me than what my doctor told me!
but believe me, he teased me exactly as I wrote it here ...

My arms fall asleep often after heavy weight training. There seems to be some connection.
Maybe something is actually taking off from there.

If I only train with medium weight and do more repetitions, I won't fall asleep.
Only after a hard workout with heavy weights and in the recovery time afterwards does it often happen that the arms fall asleep, e.g. when I lie on my side.
I have been training 100% natural for 3 years.

Hi,

In the case of carpal tunnel syndrome, however, it is more the case that the little and ring fingers fall asleep first; as the disease progresses, further paresthesia of the middle index finger and thumb then occurs. Often occurs in people with increased stress on the hands and forearms, e.g. waiters, since we also have a lot of stress on our forearms in this sport, we would certainly also be a risk group. But if you say that your whole arm falls asleep, the cause is probably higher up (proximal) of the arm.
Compression of the axillary artery (axillary artery) and the brachial artery (humerus artery) may be more likely.

Perhaps it will help you if you, if you don't do it, do a little more cardio training, as a result of which so-called collaterals are formed, i.e. the smallest blood vessels which of course also ensure better blood circulation.

greeting

Hi!

I also have the problem, my hands sleep at night or in the morning I wake up with numb hands. During the day only when I read the newspaper, but always have cold hands. My doctor immediately said that the carpal tunnel syndrome was ?! But that the finger goes numb first is not the case, but the whole hand ?!

What do you say?

Kind regards

I only have it when I lie on one side for a long time, and then usually my head also presses on the shoulder, or when one hand is bent under the head. I already think that this is a weight and space problem for me. If I fall asleep on my back with both hands on the side of my body, it won't happen.

The doc will be right about that, it will be a carpal tunnel syndrome, at the beginning it may be that only the two fingers are affected.

Wikipedia summarized this very nicely:

Typical initial symptoms are pain or abnormal sensations (falling asleep) occurring at night (after midnight, especially in the early morning), which can radiate diffusely from the hand into the entire arm, with a focus on the supply area of ​​the median nerve. Initially, the symptoms occur during and especially after the wrist is put under pressure, such as B. after physical work or riding a bike. Later, however, there are nocturnal complaints for no apparent reason. Finally, the symptoms also occur increasingly during the day and pressure damage to nerve fibers (due to the narrowing in the carpal canal) leads to muscle wasting of the hand muscles supplied by the median nerve, clearly visible in the area of ​​the ball of the thumb.

The patients get a weakness when gripping, which initially occurs mainly in the morning, but later persists.

As the nerve damage progresses, the weakness of the hand muscles increases and the sense of touch decreases, resulting in disability. On the other hand, the pain subsides at this stage, as the pain fibers are also destroyed.
