Why is my left arm below the elbo numb? It been numb for a week.

Diagnosis : Diagnosis of the causes of numbness relies on identification of specific patterns of sensory disturbance and relating them to the usual anatomy of the nervous system. Numbness involving a portion of the hand or forearm (what doctors call the upper limb further away from the rest of you than the elbow) could indicate an injury to a nerve root in the neck, to the brachial plexus, or to one of the peripheral nerves that run to the upper limb. Numbness involving the entire hand or forearm may indicate a problem in the spinal cord, or more likely the brain. Different types of conditions affect these different areas. Some are very serious, such as stroke or multiple sclerosis. There are many other potential causes too numerous to list or mention here. Seeing a doctor is a start to getting a diagnosis. ...Read more
