Had a scary start to my day

First, I don't know where this belongs so put it here aha. 

So I woke up this morning with my arm under my pillow so I'm guessing I slept on it, which is like yeah cool that's pretty normal. But when I saw it I was like is that my arm? See the thing is I couldn't feel that arm what so ever it's like it had detached itself whilst I was asleep. Now because I could move my arm and had no motion or feeling in it I decided to use my other hand to pick it up and move it from underneath my pillow in hopes I could make it work again, but then I touched it, it felt like I was picking up an inanimate object and definitely like it wasn't part of me, cos again I didn't feel it one bit which was so strange!! Eventually, I used my working arm and hand to move my fingers on my not working arm to try and wake it up, and about an hour after I woke up I had succeeded and my arm now functions again, Yayyyy!!! Although it still feels a little weird and tingly almost 3-4 hours later.

So yeah, to say the least, I had an eventful morning. Hope you enjoyed the story of my morning! ahahaha

    Ah sounds like your arm went really dead from sleeping on it? Glad it functions now!

    It happens when your arm is not getting enough blood, can feel spooky tho, you could try clenching and unclenching your fist until the vein on the back of your hand pops up a bit. This gets lots of blood pumping through your arm :)
