Nerve Compression?
I wasn't sure what topic this would fall under so I chose other. So I fell asleep on my sofa in an awkward position (on my arms bent at the elbow) and my sleep got disrupted by my numb right arm and took a while for sensatian to return to my arm especially the fingers. This has happened before and often time i had to use my numb-less arm to lift my "sleeping"arm as I could feel nothing in that arm. However, this particular time I felt this piercing pain as though i am being pierced by a long needle along the side of my forearm. I think this might be due to nerve compression but am not positive. This poses a problem as whenever I extend my arms (especially downward and sideways with palms facing down) the pain jolts through the forearm. I am required to do these moves in martial arts and am afraid i might worsen the pain if i continue doing so. Will the pain subside on its own and if so how long before it gets better? How long before I go see a doctor? Is there a way to alleviate the pain on my own? Thanks.
