In Arena - can't play cards

Technical Support
I was playing an Arena game as Shaman, turn 6 I played a totem and the hero power locked up and mana was used but no card appeared on the board. I then tried to play another card but it said I couldn't do that yet - despite having sufficient mana, I tried to attack with my minion and it said the same thing.

My turn ran out without me having played a card, yet my opponent continued on with their turn. When my next turn came around I tried to play a card, but my opponent's card hit me mid-turn and killed me, ending the game.
The same just happened to me. I could not play any cards.. My opponent continued as normal. At the end of the game i saw


Game completed and recorded! Restart Hearthstone to continue.

Sigh @ arena loss.
Please check thread dates before posting in them. :(

You disconnected and did not automatically reconnect. Whenever a turn passes the normal 90 seconds of a turn, if things are still stuck, I'd recommend you try and force-quit Hearthstone and restart as quickly as you can to force the reconnection feature to try again.

If this happens 'frequently' I'd recommend you look at my post in the common solutions thread, as well as the connectivity sticky.
