Hi rosscrossell,

I split your post into a new topic of its own.

No foam itself would have nothing to do with it. Your arms would be going numb from a lack of circulation which could be caused by your sleeping position (elevating your shoulders by sleeping with your hands under your head when you are on your back for extended periods of time would be another example), a mattress that is too firm (foam or otherwise), or a pillow that isn't keeping your head and neck in good alignment.

also is it the chems in the mattress or the chems they use to make to help with fire safety thats the problem?


No ... even if your mattress has fire retardant chemicals (and most mattresses use an inherent non chemical fire retardant barrier to pass the fire regulations) ... it wouldn't cause your arms to go numb.
