i have seen patients that have caused terrible carpel tunnel from sleeping this way: i have them sleep with two caprel tunnel wrist braces to prevent this position
the only way to know if it is a sleep pathology issue is to have a sleep test with your dr
long term damage to nerves from sleeping like this can occur and an EMG with a neurologist can rule it out, muscle relaxants are also used as a sleep adjunct in these cases
start with the carpel tunnel braces and see your dr to discuss the others
as i see you are offline i will switch to q/a mode
please accept if no more questions
i would not be too worried about a neurological condition causing this though-more so the peripheral damage from doing it
