Suggest treatment for profuse night sweats and tingling sensation in the left arm
My e-mail address is YYYY@YYYY
Good morning. Thank you for your question and concerns about the tingling and numbness you are feeling along the inner left arm from axilla to the thumb and index finger. I agree with you that at first glance some type of compression of a nerve or nerve root coming from your cervical spinal cord sounds as if it were being compressed or pinched. As far as the night sweats and the visual phenomenon are concerned I can't see a direct relationship with what's going on in the arm without a bit more information and test results.
My recommendation is that you see your doctor and get a good neurological examination of that left arm in terms of the motor strength and sensory capacity of the major nerves in the brachial plexus. Specifically, I would focus on the C6 and C7 nerve roots coming from the neck as they course into the arm through the axilla. The best tests to look at that sort of thing would be an EMG and Nerve Conduction Study as well as an MRI of the cervical spine.
Depending upon what you find there or what the suspicion may be after examination I would also recommend a CHEST X-ray to see if anything could be pressing upward from the apex of the lung such as a cyst, abscess, or tumor. Any of those types of things could also explain nightsweats though not the gridlike pattern you're seeing.
For that phenomenon you will first need to have an ophthalmologist or optometry check the integrity of your eyes and go from there.
