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

Numbness in hands while sleeping can be caused from a variety of things. This could be poor circulation or you may have been laying on your arm.

The numbness in hands is a sign of loss feeling or sensation. Numbness can happen if you are laying on your hand while sleeping.

Pressure on the side you sleep on. Arthritis. Old age. Overweight.

Sleeping right after you eat can cause you to gain weight because while you are sleeping you aren't moving around to work off the sugars & fat that you had just eaten.

Unfortunately when you are asleep you do not have control over your actions, so in order to kiss someone while asleep you would have to miraculously sleepwalk to where his/her is and accurately kiss them with your lips.However if you mean kiss them while they are sleeping, go right ahead and plant one right on his/her lips.

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.

During the night, your throat can get dry due to breathing while asleep. Especially if you breathe through your mouth while sleeping.

I'm not sure that you can learn new things while you're sleeping but I do know that if you study something right before you go to bed, it's more likely that you'll remember it the next day. I also know that while you're sleeping the brain organizes information that you've learned while you were awake.

I believe when your tired, you get cold. When you sleeping, you are very tired. You get cold while sleeping because you are tired

There is surely no harm in covering the face while sleeping.

you could have hit it on something when you were sleeping

I doubt it - it's probably a trapped nerve or circulatory problems. I often wake with numb fingers if I've slept awkwardly on my arm.
