The first night it was a dull ache in both arms causing me uncomfort however tonight (I have woken up to it again) it is a much more prominent pain just in my left arm. I cannot lay it down in any position that is comfortable and allows me to get back to sleep. I'm only 20 and very worried

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

You may be sleeping in a certain position that is affecting your arms. Try sleeping in a different position and use a pillow between your knees to stable your body. See if that helps.

If it doesn't,you need to see a doctor. We can only speculate as to why you're in pain - you may have nerve pain or something going on with your spine. I hope you get back to normal soon.
