I have a tingling sensation throughout my right arm as if I have bumped my funnybone. In the morning is when it is the worst.
The: The feeling when the "funnybone" is hit comes from the ulnar nerve, one of the three major nerves in the upper limb. Usually this feeling is felt most in the pinkie and ring finger, and on the pinkie side of the forearm. If the whole upper limb is affected by a similar feeling, the problem may involve part of the brain, spinal cord, or an interchange of nerves called the brachial plexus. Often, problems involving the spinal cord and brachial plexus involve not only a feeling, but also some weakness. A visit to a primary care doctor may start to sort things out. ...Read more
