Why do limbs "fall asleep"?

Topics: Health


Limbs fall asleep when pressure is applied to nerve pathways, causing them to loose their electoral connection with the brain.

Pressure to a limb cuts off communication from your brain to the part of your body causing the limb to "fall asleep".

The pressure squeezes nerve pathways so that the nerves can't transmit electrochemical impulses properly.
