Prescribed Z pack for dry cough, numbness in forearm. Symptoms of lung cancer?

I have a dry cough for 1.5 weeks. Went to Urgent Care they listened to my chest and lungs and said everything was fine. Gave me a prescription for Z-Pack, Codeine Cough Syrup , and Inhaler . Coughing is less but I seem to have a numbness in my forearm on my left side that came and went for 2-3 days. I quit smoking 6 months ago and I am 38 years old. Could I have symptoms of lung cancer?

thanks for your query,
first thing i want to tell you that your dry cough may be due to many reasons but numbness may be a serious issue. why inhaler? have you any symtom of wheeze at night? if not, you may hold also have to stop codeine cough syrup and take just tab montair- fx or telekast-f(montelukast+ fexofenadine)-1 tab once daily at bed time. you should do a complete blood count(Hb, TC,DC, ESR) and chest X-Ray(PA view) and consult a pulmonologist
thank you
