I did a little bit of reading up on this and it's rather interesting.
I had posted a thread a couple of weeks back with a concern that my hands and arms were going to sleep on me like you wouldn't believe while sleeping.
Everything I have read leads me to believe this is what I have.

It sounds kind of similar to a nerve being pinched by muscle tissue, if the **** is bad man I'd be at docs office.

it's not. It explains why it occurs when I'm sleeping. Has to do with Neck position.

I think Hank Blalock of the rangers had this earlier. He had surgery to remove a rib.

Kenny Rogers had this about 4 years ago when he was with the rangers. He also removed a rib.

I've had the same problem, but with my legs and not when sleeping. They'll just randomly go to sleep and it drizes me insane. It doesn't even have to be when I'm sitting or putting pressure on them, I could be standing around and my leg instantly goes tingly numb.

Down mostlly. Of course now I sleep on a couch with dogs on me and don't notice it. The dogs cured me.
