Over the last number of weeks I have been experiencing numbness in my right arm. most recently I had difficulty lifting when went to put shampoo in my hair. This has been occurring for last 3 weeks approx. I notice the numbness after using the hand playing tennis for example. This occurred before approximately two years ago and carpel tunnel was ruled out at that point in time. I m scared it might be something like M.S. The only thing is that I have a tendency to lean on my right arm while sleeping and place my head on it. Could this be causing it alternatively

I have had phlebitis in the left arm for apx. 3 or 4 weeks now. I just started taking Ibuprofin three times a day and warm compress but remains the same. I don t drink much water...need to change a bad habit. Am worried that I am fixin to face a major heart attack . I have swelling in the middle of the arm and apx. 5 or more hard bumps along the vein . I also have a few hard bumps in the other arm and some in the legs. My blood test was normal, an ultrasound indicated phlebitis. I was told that it may have been an injury to the arm. I have fallen a few times recently, but no injury. I know of no one in my family ever having this. Thanks for your advice! / Faye
