At night I have been having problems with the circulation in my arms because I sleep on them under my head. It kind of gets cut off for some reason and i need to move it to get the blood back in when i wake up. I think my sodium intake is kind of high bc of frozen meals which i eat a lot of bc of schedule. Does vitamin E help? How can i increase circulation?
im not sure cause I go through the same thing, I have been trying to sleep in a different position but when I wake up I am back to the same one
"Doc, I broke my arm in three places. What do I do?"
"Stay out of those three places."
heh heh. Sorry.
This happens to me all the time. If my arms end up over my shoulders there's a pretty good chance they're going to fall asleep. This is a mechanical, not a chemical, problem. The blood vessels going to the arms are getting crimped by the structures in your shoulders when your arms are up. No supplement is going to make the available space for your vessels any larger. If it's a persistent problem you will "learn" to put your arms up there less often. There's surgery available for thoracic outlet syndrome, but you don't want any part of it if it only occurs when you're sleeping.
My feet were falling asleep last night just by laying down and i mean they were losing circulation, body straight laying on back
use a pillow to cushion your arm so its not pressing up against the bed so tightly.
