Anesthesiologist 's  Response
Ur problems of pins n needle sensation in left arm probably suggest cervical spondylitis or cervical disc bulge causing spinal cord compression. These symptoms getting increase when u go out because u give more strain to spine n noy because of alcohol.u mentioned swelling of hand.did u ever had trauma or infection? Do u have diabetes?
