Cold Left Arm And Hand
Vascular dz: Consider a subclavian artery stenosis (narrowing) of the blood vessel giving blood flow to the arm. Blood pressure should be lower in the cold arm than the warm arm. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy is another consideration but usually has pain. This should be evaluated with a ultrasound study of blood flow velocity in into and through the arm. If present other vascular disease must be considered. ...Read more

My left arm was heavy, and when I went to feel it, my left hand was cold. My right arm feels fine. Could this be heart related?
Maybe (not) . . .: Go to ER now. Don't pass Go. But do call 911 to expedite your care. You didn't describe pain or weakness but I suspect latter w/"heavy". While not common in 20yo, sudden onset of weakness in any limb is suspicious for stroke. Think FAST (http://www.stroke.org/understand-stroke/recognizing-stroke/act-fast). Painful cold limb is suspicious for ischemia (inadequate blood flow). Either way, go now. ...Read more

Nerve pinched: Pressure on a nerve can cause pain, numbness, feeling of cold alone or in combination. This pressure can occur at any level where the nerve runs ending in the neck. At the wrist or the neck would be most likely. Less likely would be problem in the brain. A blood vessel blockage is possible but the way you describe less likely You need to see a doctor right away and get examined and diagnosed. ...Read more

My left arm and hand are blue and they are numb. I'm also experiencing a lot of weakness in that hand
I had a nasty chest pain earlier, it went away but now I have a weird tingling sensation in my left arm and hand. Any thoughts what it is?
First time symptoms?: Are these the first symptoms you've ever had of this problem? I recommend you see your primary doc. Young people can have valvular/other cardiac problems like older people. It's relatively rare but birth defects can be present and never detected until later simply because there are no symptoms. And especially if you're into exertional sports in school etc. Call your doctor for an appointment soon ...Read more
