I'm experiencing a tickling (not tingling) sensation in both of my upper forearms / biceps since yesterday. Gradual onset. No pain or other symptoms.

Hmmmm.....: I think we will need a bit more information if you have any in order to help. It certainly doesn't sound like an emergency at this point. The fact that it is both forearms is a bit odd. So long as you do not have any muscle weakness I think careful observation for the next few days should help glean more information. Let us know. ...Read more

My left arm has been tingling for the past 2days with no other symptoms. I am not taking meds but I do take vitamins & it only happens at night, why?

Check it out: Something in your body is being compressed (squeezed) causing your arm or part of your arm to "fall asleep". If it is your entire arm, it's most likely the blood supply to the arm. Just part of the arm is most likely a nerve, but that can happen anywhere along the nerve's path, from your brain to your wrist. Talk to your doc. ...Read more

Stress: Yes, stress can cause a lot of symptoms but chest pain in women can be worrisome due to women commonly having atypical cardiac chest pain. Tingling in the arm sounds more neurological like pinched nerve in neck or shoulder. Headaches are common for stress and many other causes. Putting all together is hard, but could be stress, cardiac, other neurological cause - or more than one. (and others). ...Read more

Could a nerve problem be causing such symptoms? Such as left shoulder pain when breathing deeply and lying down, left arm tingling at all times.

Could a nerve problem be causing such symptoms? Such as left shoulder pain when breathing deeply and lying down, left arm tingling at all times.

Yes: As tingling in arm is constant, and worsens with change of position, my best guess would be nerve compression within the shoulder. Breathing deeply is like the positional change, it puts further pressure of the nerve as the lungs fill with air and compress anatomy upwards into the nerve compression site. See an orthopedist. ...Read more
