It could be because of the fact that blood vessels or nerves in your arms and legs get compressed and you feel as if they have fallen asleep. It could happen due to sleeping or sitting in positions which may make them more likely to get compressed like resting your arms against a sharp edge. However, if it happening too often you may see a doctor to rule out any neurological disease. Thanks.
