This is Dr. David

how old are you? are you male or female

numbness in the right arm can be from a pinched nerve in your neck

or pinched artery which can temporary block of circulation.

when you sleep you often can sleep on your arm and temporarily block of circulation and you can wake up with extreme numbness and tingling in your arm. this goes away when you get up and get normal circulation back into your arm.

your neck pain can be a sign of a pinched nerve in your neck

an MRI scan of your neck can look for this

let me know if you have other questions
