I am feeling slightly numbness in my left arm.

Hi I am 21 years old, I have a tingling sensation mainly in left arm just like I am getting my blood pressure checked, warm cool feeling in forearm . First came to my attention last 2 weeks if I sleep in my normal every night position I wake up multiple times a night because my arm has completely fallen asleep. Now during the day I have this slight feeling, not as strong of course as when I sleep and put pressure on it, definitely becoming a little more noticeable as days pass, I recently moved to china this is why I haven t stopped in a clinic for a normal check-up, Thanks

Numbness feeling of arm can be due to cervical spine compression. Do the CT scan or MRI of spine for final diagnosis. consult your orthopedics to evaluate the case. thank you

Tingling sensation, along the forearm. This can be due to compression of the ulnar nerve. Bad sleeping posture can lead to compression of nerve that passes in the posterior aspect of your arm.

However, get yourself evaluated by a orthopaedician
