Arm and fingers go numb at night

I have no neck pain. I get a tingling sensation ( electric current) in my left shoulder, sometimes in the same area there is a sharp pain. My fingers in left hand tingle, pain, itch. The inside of my hand also pains and itches. I find difficulty sleeping at night due to arm and fingers going numb. Only lying on back helps but must be slightly elevated. Lying on side aggravates the pressure that causes the numbness.

Hello Rolene,
Which fingers and which part of your arm goes numb?

Please do the Upper Limb tension test and let me have the result.
