While sleeping I have noticed my arms go numb and tingly. I figured this out after noticing pain in my thumbs that have affected my function of the thumb(s).

Try sleeping with your arm straight. If you move a lot in your sleep wrap a towel around your elbow to make your arm straight. I have ulner nerve issues in my right elbow and this helps.

Somewhat related, and quite interestingly, my hands sometimes go numb and tingling when I experience more intense sexual pleasure. I don’t feel any pain, though. Anyone experience that?

My hands started going numb while sleeping about 5 or 6 years ago. Recently the numbness spread from just my hands to my entire arm. I think it’s (for me) from sleeping on my side, and partially related to osteoarthritis in my shoulders. I try to stay sleeping flat on my back. It helps with both the numbness/pain in my arms and hands, and also with my neck and back pain.

For me, I discovered it was my head position that was causing it. My pillow was pushing my head into flexion (chin down) position which, combined with my craniocervical instability and low lying cerebellar tonsils, which were eventually diagnosed, was causing these sensory changes.
