Feel pressure in arm when down, get released when lifted. Poor blood circulation? Seek medical attention?

When my right arm is down in the normal walking position, I feel pressure that starts at my elbow and works down towards my hand. It feels kind of like the pressure you feel when you are upside down and blood rushes to your head. The pressure is released when I lift my arm. Does this mean I have poor blood circulation in my arm? If so, should I seek medical attention ASAP?

Neurologist 's  Response
this type of symptoms usually occurs in elbow joint inflammation especially tendinitis(golfers, tennis elbow)where symptoms are less when lifting the arm.

You need to consult physician /neurologist for same and rule out whether actually having tendinitis or any other cause hence clinical examination is at most important

Meantime have voveran 50 mg twice daily after food for 2 days and see for the response.
