Sounds as if you have a pinched nerve. It could also be your mattress. If your mattress is sagging, or the stuffing is thin, then the springs are hitting you along your body. Time for a new mattress! If it isn't that then it's the wrong mattress for you. There are so many good mattress' out there and one that is high ranking is "memory foam" like the ones tha astronauts used while in space. You can buy these mattress' at your leading mattress stores. They don't come cheap! I was in a head-on collision (not my fault) and injured my neck. I would wake up with severe headaches and numbness down the left side of my body. It scared the heck out of me as I thought I was having a heart attack. I saw my Doctor Who sent me to a Chiropractor and that helped. The Chiropractor suggested a "roll" for inside my pillow case. It looks like a long sausage and you just insert it inside the pillow case length-wise at the very edge of your pillow. When you lay on it, it cups your neck. I've never had a problem since and I even take my pillow and foam roll with me on holidays. Why the pillow? Because your shaped head has made your pillow the most comfy for you and if you were to sleep on a pillow in a hotel/motel it could cause you discomfort and besides that ... if you put your roll in one of those other pillows you'd probably forget it and trust me when I say, you will hold onto that roll (for your neck) like a baby hangs onto a soother. LOL If you go to drug stores that handle special things like elbow braces or hand braces, etc., this is where you will find the good rolls for your pillow. Good luck Marcy

What is the cause of numbness of body?

Another cause of limb numbness is the hyperventilation some people experience when they're anxious or afraid. While numbness usually is a harmless symptom, doctors stress that any sudden, unexplained numbness could be a sign of a serious illness and should be checked out. Among the more serious causes of numbness are poor blood circulation, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and carpal tunnel syndrome-a compression of the nerves of the wrist, which causes numbness in the hand and fingers. Numbness also can be a warning sign of an imminent stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA), a mini-stroke that temporarily causes symptoms of a major stroke such as paralysis or blurred vision. Without proper medical treatment, a TIA can lead to a full-blown stroke that may cause permanent physical or mental impairment.
