wake with shoulder pain

I frequently wake up with severe pain in my left shoulder when I'm sleeping on my left side with arm either under the pillow or stretched out in front of me. If I sleep with my arm raised above my head, the arm goes completely numb and is dead weight. I literally raise up and let if flop back in the downward position. I have absolutely no problems with this shoulder or arm during the day. What could be causing this?

maybe because your arm is asleep, try to train yourself not to put you hands above your head and see if the pain still happens, also try not to sleep on that shoulder, your muscles or nerves could be stressed because of how you sleep. hope you figure ot out.
