General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi ! It is possible that your symptoms are due to some kind of anxiety neurosis. At the same time, I would like to exclude some organic causes for your symptoms. One such possibility is a cervical spondylitis, which may give rise to such tingling sensation in your right arm.
Also having a history of IV infusion, I would also like to exclude thrombo phlebitis of your right arm veins which can be known with clinical examination of your arm.
I would suggest you to get yourself reviewed by your treating physician even though you are diagnosed as a case of anxiety neurosis.
Wishing you an early recovery. Thanks.
