Feeling numbness/tingling right side of face& body for almost a day. what can be causing this? i felt a pinch on right arm when it started.

Need to see Dr.: You are young, so this is reassuring. However, when your face is involved, it suggests that you are having something happening in your brain, not in your neck as could cause just arm tingling. Ever had migraines? Sometimes you can have other migraine symptoms without pain. The worrisome concern would be a stroke or other spot in the brain. You need to have an exam and maybe a brain scan. ...Read more

Numbness and pain: in the right arm and then the left is likely due to overuse and resultant nerve compression. If it were due to a medication it would affect both sides of the body at the same time and likely begin in the legs. Numbness in pain in the left arm first associated with difficulty breathing could be due to angina. If the symptoms persist see a doctor. ...Read more
