Side Sleepers of MeFi: Where do you put your hands while asleep?

I've been a lifelong sidesleeper. My preferred hand position is with my hands curled up under my chin. For a while now, I'm being woken up by the pins and needles sensation in my hand (the shoulder side down hand) as it's asleep. I'm trying to figure out where else to put my hands while I sleep.

I've mentioned this to my doctor, who didn't seem too concerned about it. I would sleep with my arms stretched out perpendicular to my body, but Mr Jane is less than enthusiastic about this solution, as I would be invading his bedspace.
