You need to be seen by a doctor again and have a complete evaluation. It may be muscle aching pain such as myositis. It could be nerve pain such as neuropathy which can be caused by numerous conditions. You could have an electrolyte imbalance such as potassium. You could be having a reaction to a medication that you take so be sure your physician is aware of all medications and supplements. But I urge you to be seen immediately again.
If you have increased pain, fever, weakness or numbness then you will have to go to the er. ...Read more

When ever I bend my arms at my elbows, within minutes my arms from elbow to finger tips all get tingly and go numb. What is the most likely cause ofit?
Impingement: A positional impingement of nerves passing through the elbow structures is the most likely mechanism.

A neurologist is best suited to evaluate you and can perform an emg to pinpoint the area of impingement if you wish. ...Read more

See a doctor: Hi. That is odd. Both arms, right? Is there any swelling in your arms and face? Are you a smoker?

Everytime I bend my elbows my arms hurt and little finger and ring finger go numb. Nerve conduction studies normal.
Cubital tunnel: Cubital tunnel syndrome. Impingement of the ulnar nerve at the elbow. Wearing an elbow guard at night and avoid sleeping with arms straight and down by your side will help reduce the numbness. Wear a headset instead of holding the phone to the ear. Grip the steering wheel at 5 or 7 o'clock instead of 10 and 2 o'clock. ...Read more

Can Dysesthesia cause an electric shock to the last two fingers in both arms out of nowhere, for example when tapping/rubbing next to the funny bone?
No: Dysesthesia is not a disease or condition. It's a symptom.

This may be an ulnar neuropathy which can have benign or serious causes. See your doctor. ...Read more

Let me say I can only think of THE FOLLOWING: per your limited input, being meningococcal meningitis, vasculitis, Raynauds disease, Hansens disease, SBE with periferal embolisation, perhaps blood dyscrasia with macroglobulins and etc!! (Google?) ...Read more
Is it. Normal for a panic attack to cause the limbs to temporarily cramp up completely? (arms/finger/toes curled in unnable to move)
Yes: Panic attack = rapid breathing (hyperventilation). This reduces the normal level of carbon dioxide in the blood, which causes your ph to rise (respiratory alkalosis), which in turn reduces the free calcium in your blood, which leads to painful muscle spasms or contractions, especially in the fingers/wrist and feet. Gets better when you slow down your breathing (or re-breathe into a paper bag). ...Read more
