Thank you for posting your query.
Pain along one upper limb along with tingling
and numbness is less likely to be due to stroke. However, if it ascends up to the face, then most often it would be due to stroke.
As of now, other possibilities could involve a local problem with the nerves in hands such as median nerve
compression (carpal tunnel syndrome
); disc prolapse
with nerve compression in the neck and sensory seizures.
So, you need not rush to ER but You need an evaluation by a neurologist
for diagnosis and treatment.
Wishing you good health,
