Paralysing feeling or numbness in shoulders and arms - late pregnancy


I am in my 8th month of pregnancy and sometimes get a paralysing feeling in my shoulders and arms. It feels like when a person is really scarred /terrified or when a person is in shock. I’ ve read about numbness in your legs during pregnancy but cannot find anything about the upper body. Is this normal?

Hi. It could be a pinched nerve. Maybe a few sessions of physio would help.
