Standing straight with arms at side, my left forearm starts tingling. If EMG, neck, b.plexus is normal why do I get these so easily everywhere?

Ulnar neuropathy?: If moving your arm or forearm into a different position relieves the tingling its more likely that you have compression ulnar nerve at the elbow area. It's less likely that a cervical or brachial neuropathy would just cause isolated forearm tingling. EMG is helpful if abnormal but a normal study doesn't rule out a compression neuropathy.

How long does tingling happen before first outbreak of herpes. I get itching neck pain lower back pain now tingling for over 4 days now?

This isn't herpes: For initial herpes, usually no tingling before sores appear. Tingling is mainly a symptom of recurrent herpes; in that case, it lasts only a day or two before the outbreak itself shows up. Your symptoms don't sound at all like herpes, which doesn't cause tingling without sores and rarely if ever causes low back pain. So good news, this isn't herpes. See your doctor if symptoms continue. Good luck! ...Read more
