The question is : A little unclear. But, if you have numbness I would look to have an Emg/NCV performed to see if there is any radiculopathy from the lower back. Regarding the cramps, I would make sure there is no circulatory disturbance and would start with arterial dopplers and consider a magnesium supplement.

Can a pinched nerve cause Numbness and weakness that comes and go on the right arm/hand and right leg/foot?  Also, pain in the shoulder blade/bicep.

Testing, including CT/MRI imaging, and blood tests are needed. Work with your doctor to diagnose. ...Read more

An infectious or inflammatory workup may also be indicated. Again, the pain and lack of movement in the right arm needs more immediate attention. ...Read more
