Numbness from Shoulder to Elbow and Palms not feeling Warmth Suggest a Sensory disturbance in your Right Upper Limb

This can be
1. Peripheral Neuropathy due to Metabolic Causes
2. Diseases like Hansen
3. Cervical Spondylosis
4. Brachial Plexus Lesions
5. Cord Lesions like Central Cord Syndrome or Syrinx

To Proceed Further, we Need
1. Clinical Examination
2. Radiological Examinations like X Rays, CT, MRI Spine
3. Nerve Conduction Studies

I would request you to kindly consult a Neurosurgeon at the earliest for further evaluation
