This happens when I lay on my back or either side, but not when I lie face This happens when I lay on my back or either side, but not when I lie face. I have had trouble sleeping more than three jours at a tome for decades and have never, within my memory, been able to fall back asleep quickly. Also, when I put my right arm bent above my head (further from my feet, not higher in elevation) very soon my last two fingers and the portion of my lower arm between those fingers and my elbow goes numb. (This last and my coughing problem have only been with me for less than a year.) I take Simvastatin, Cozaar, Omeprizole, aspirin, lutein, metamucil, and a few dietary suppliments. I'm 75 and had a cerebellar tumor (1955), double bypass (1997), brachytherapy for prostate cancer (2004) and an artibicial right radial head (2005).
