Hi..... Your body weight will exert pressure on your nerves and disrupt the circulation of blood to your arm. Sleeping on your arm may compress the arteries and restrict the flow of blood with nutrients to your arm tissue. Consequently, your arm will not send signals to your brain or understand signals from your brain. Your arms or hands fall asleep while sleeping until normal blood circulation resumes.... I hope this helps....
