Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

This is most likely due to a compressed radial nerve caused by an odd posture during sleep.Most of the times it gets better on its own in some hours. But in case it does not get better then do see a doctor to rule out any permanent compression.Meanwhile massage the whole arm gently with olive oil.

Hope this helps.
