Bad Sleep Position; No Arm Feeling
I never want to wake up like that again.

This morning I woke up and couldn't feel my right arm from the shoulder down. I'd had similar happen before but not the whole arm and to a much lessor degree. I quickly got up and out of bed to start shaking the arm, changing its elevation to the rest of my body, and getting the fingers to tighten and release. Within a minute or two I managed to get feeling back in my arm and it appears to be mostly okay now. It still feels like there is a little deadness feeling to the arm, though.

I am never sleeping in that position again. Ever. Bleh.

One time when that happened to my arm in the middle of the night, I woke up screaming because I thought somebody else's arm was in my bed.

I could definitely believe that after the way my arm felt. I didn't even feel like I was missing the arm, if it wasn't for the fact I could see it and knew intellectually should be there. It seems to be recovering now, although there are moments when it feels like it could still be missing or is numb in places.
