REVIVE DEAD ARMS
If you've always slept soundly but now regularly wake up with a loss of sensation in your arms, don't worry, says GP and Prevention adviser Dr Joe Kosterich. "The dead-arm feeling is harmless if it disappears in a minute or two after waking. It's simply the result of sleeping in a way that puts pressure on the artery, slowing circulation to that limb. Once you're up and about, thereby releasing the pressure, your arm will start to feel normal. A numb arm doesn't point to circulatory problems!"
