Weakness and numbness is usually attributed to peripheral nerve problems although other causes may be there. First of all, has the weakness increased/progressed since it started? Did you have any injury to your arm? Any radiating pain form your neck or shoulder?
In Any case i would advise you to consult a neurologist/ physician as soon as possible so that you can be examined and the exact cause of your symptoms can be known.
Take care
