differentials discussed, suggested tests
Welcome to our site
I am Dr Saumya Mittal
Read your query
That is a very significant question
And I appreciate your problem
I will try my best to answer your query
I think there may be a couple of reasons why you may have developed this condition
One possibility is that you have been having some cervical spondylitis
What happens is that the nerves get compressed in the neck and this causes trouble.
An alternative possibility is that you are developing neuropathy
Due to the possibility of endless causes
Most commonly hypothyroidism
, diabetes, drug induced
As the details of these history are not available
I would request further history there
And suggest having thyroid functions, sugars and vitamin B12
A third but faint possibility is that you may have developed some brain lesion
Whereby you are developing sensory monoparesis
However as I said, the possibility is faint and distant.
A fourth possibility is that you are starting to develop some cardiac symptoms
In that case a dobutamine
stress echo should help
Again I don't have any history provided as to whether you have hypertension
Or what medicines you are on.
A last possibility I would like to consider is severe gastritis and oesophageal reflux
Where the acid produced in the stomach
Causes chest pain
or left arm symptoms
However since the condition is not life threatening usually
We can probably wait for previous reports
And you can probably consult your local doctor and get his opinion on starting proton pump
I hope this helps you
Inform the reports mentioned above
So I can be of help further.
Best of luck.
