Tingling arm, dizziness, feeling faint. Any idea?

I m a 24 year old healthy female. Recently I have been experiencing pain/ tingling in my right arm , dizziness , and feeling faint. I had my son 3 1/2 weeks ago and was anemic after having him. I thought the anemia could be the cause but my levels were checked two days ago and are almost back to normal. After learning this I attributed my symptoms to anxiety/ stress , but two days later the spells are getting more frequent. I will feel fine for hours then all of a sudden I get the symptoms. It does not appear matter what I am doing. I have felt the symptoms while sitting, walking, and lying down. Any idea what could be going on?

Neurologist 's  Response
Your symptoms could be either a sensory seizure or intermittent compression over nerves in neck region. You need to visit a neurologist who can examine you and come to some conclusion. You may have to undergo scan of the head and neck to ascertain cause. Since it is increasing in frequency, you should consult doctor soon.
Good luck.
