Numbness

I'm 14 years old, and about a few months ago my parents bought me a new bed. Every night I always seem to lay on my stomach, which is the most comfortable position for me, and even when I don't fall asleep in that position, I tend to wake up on my stomach. A few weeks after getting my bed I realized that I had numbness in both of my breasts. I thought this was normal, and it was because I'm growing, but it still hasn't gone away. I'm starting to think that I'm laying on my breasts the wrong way, which is cutting off the circulation to them. But they're always numb. It doesn't really bother me much, but now I'm getting concerned. Should I go see my doctor? Or is it due to the fact that I'm just cutting off the circulation, and may have damaged something? :)

It's very likely a positional thing. Occasionally pressure during sleep will temporarily impede circulation, as you said, or sometimes your prone position during sleep may impinge a bit on the nerves that relate to your breasts.It is relatively normal because, at age fourteen, you are still developing. It's not likely that you need to see your Doctor at this time. But, how long does the numbness seem to last before sensation returns?Best,John<
