“Saturday at night palsy” is generally used to refer to a nerve compression that happens to people when they fall asleep inebriated or intoxicated on their arm. They wake up in the morning with numbness and weakness of the hand and wrist. This results from pressure on the nerves in the arm pushing against the solid surface. The condition usually involves the radial nerve that runs right along the humerus, which is the large upper bone in the arm.
