Brief Answer:
Cervical nerve compression/ impingement suspected.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query on HealthcareMagic.

The history posted by you is suggestive of cervical spondylitis wherein there is some change in position of the cervical vertebrae with respect to each other.
Cervical spondylitis can lead to pain and tingling sensation radiating down to the arms.
These symptoms are due to impingement of the cervical nerves.
Hot flushes also are probably due to compression or impingement of the cervical nerve.

However, further investigations are required to confirm.
A MRI of the cervical spine will help to ascertain the site of impingement if present.
Further management can be planned after the investigations.
Consult an orthopedician for further work up.

If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.

I have been having tingling sensation on my right shoulder. Only about four-five times a day. This has been going on for five days. Only lasts for 10-15 seconds. Feels like ants crawling on me.

I have a dear friend whom woke up one morning with a blackened/ red eye lid. There was a slight swelling but no tingle sensation/ numbness. The discoloration goes over her upper eye lid to almost her nose . She did not receive any trauma to the eye. There is no vision problems, and no other apparent symptoms? I am worried that this could be a secondary condition? I have researched this , and I have come up with no ideas. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance!

Doctor, I am an 18 year old male, I recently came back from a week in Cuba, and about halfway during my stay I started getting minor mouth sores (canker) and a slight tingling/irritation of the skin on the outside of my cheek of the responding side of the sores, very small bumps aswell leading from my lip/mustache line to my chin, slight redness, very small bumps (not visible, you have to feel) and slight dryness of skin, my oral hygiene is very good. I live in Vancouver and it is very cold. my doctor has prescribed me Cortate ointment for the skin on my cheek, but it does not seen to be helping.
