This is probably straight forward but...

Often I will wake up in the middle of the night with my left arm completely numb. It takes about a minute to get any feeling back in it at all, and during this time I cannot move it. When feeling does come back, due to the sustained effort of trying to move it previously it will often shoot suddenly into the air. Also, sometimes, my hand will be extremely tingly to the point I cannot move it.

Is this likely to be simply that I sleep awkwardly, or a deeper nerve problem?

I recommend you see a doctor about that.

that happened to me once when i was camping on Duke of Ed. I woke up and I was lying on my arm and then I couldn't move it or feel it and it was all tingly. Went away after a few minutes though, but it was pretty scary at first when I'd never had anything like that before. Are you sure you're not just sleeping on it?

It happend to me when i was camping, i was bricking it. i assume i cut off blood to my arm and nerves, so it wouldn't move, I think its happend to me about 3 times due to sleeping awkward. I've not noticed any bad effects, I'm quite athletic so i don;t particularily like it because I'm sure it's not good for muscles...

Its msot likly because uv cut the blood off to your arm, this makes ur arm go numb and tingly, if it happens jsut put your arm below you if your laying down, as this will cause all the blood to rush back to it
