Could be nerve: Hard to tell based on limited information. Many times neck and shoulder muscles when injured will cause a radiation of pain in the arm and a sensation of tingling. However, if there is any associated weakness you should be evaluated by a ORTHO/NERUO/PM&R promptly. Also if there is any nausea or sweating with it get to ER for cardiac work up....you are young for that but you never know. ...Read more

No worries: Congratulations on the baby Allison. Unfortunately they can reek havoc on your body. I would recommend you start with the basic moist heat, massage & lymphatic drainage of that left arm. Carpal Tunnel syndrome is a distinct possibility. Try a cock up splint. You may need an MRI of your C-Spine if not improving. I wouldn't worry about the vasomotor symptoms. They will resolve with time. Common! ...Read more

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.

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
