Is losing circulation in my arm dangerous?

Question by : Is losing circulation in my arm dangerous?
a few times now ive woken up without blood in my arm, making it completely numb and impossible to move. i fix it by picking my arm up with my other hand and hanging it off the bed.

i want to know if this is serinusly harmful to my arm at all, and besides taking care in how i position my arm before bed how i can prevent this from happening. cos i must admit, it is quite frightening!
thanks!
