During the night (while asleep), I had placed my hand and arm under the back of my neck and head and kept it there too long, resulting in a very deep "sleep" for my whole arm. I had to pull it out of position with my other hand, and shake it around to wake it up. It's a very weird thing to lose the ability to move a limb, isn't it?
It felt and looked like a dead fish from Fulton Market, and it took a while to get the feeling back in it. I didn't care for that at all......and I'd like to know how to prevent that in the future.
The only other time I know of that happening to me was when my last baby was born. She came out before the anesthesia took hold, so I was left in the recovery room, strapped to a gurney so I wouldn't fall off. I was, by that time, numb from the hips down. What an awful feeling. I was convinced that one leg was falling off the table - although that would have been impossible - and I called the nurses to "fix my leg." They must have though I was nuts....lol.
