A 29-year-old male asked:
Had a left shoulder injury in late 2019 which resolved over a couple days. however, since then i've had a mild tingle sensation down my left mid arm towards my pinky finger when i shrug my shoulders. i have no pain or numbness should i be concerned?

Perhaps at time of shoulder injury you also affected the left brachial plexus, and the shoulder "shrug" appears to stimulate the lower plexus, causing the tingling sensation in an ulcer nerve distribution. You might consider investigating this over time, but currently, your symptoms appear minimal and certainly not urgent.
