Hi I feel like if my left arm has been feeling very very mild numbness. Mainly at my left shoulder. No chest pain at all. Should I go see my doctor in the morning? Does this sound urgent?

Not urgent: Numbness in the arm without chest pain may not be emergent. You can go in the morning to see your doctor.
