Hands “falling asleep” while sleeping is typically due to compression of the ulnar or median nerves (cubital or carpel tunnel syndrome-see website) Cracking shoulder sounds are typically caused by rotator cuff syndromes or by instability of the shoulder joint.

Spasms in the anterior shoulder muscles can be related to the neck or the shoulder.
