does this happen to anyone else?

I cant sleep with my arms up on the pillow with my head when im laying on my back.

I find it really comfy and often drift off to sleep like it, only to wake up a bit later thinking i have no arms because i cant feel them to the extent that i cant move them, the other night i had to wake up my boyfriend and get him to move them down by my sides then went back to sleep again!

This seems really wierd, as im sure ive seen other people sleep like it before, but was wondering if the completely numb and lifeless thing happens to other people too?

    I think it's due to the blood draining from the arm when it's higher than the heart or something like that.

    my arm's arent any higher than my heart though if im laying down...that rule only counts when your body is verticle.

    Maybe my arm joints block off some blood flow or something
