    I also have experienced the numbing sensation in the back of the head or neck area. It only happens when I am laying down awkwardly with a wadded up pillow under my head. To correct this I purchased a memory foam pillow which gives both my neck and head better support when I lie down. It does this by conforming to the shape of my head rather than putting pressure on certain areas of my neck and head. I hope this is helpful.

    thank you so much for your kind suggestion. I was sitting upright in the middle of the day so was especially odd to me. But i very much appreciate your thoughts and reply.
