Sever burning pain in the arms with tingling and occasional numbness only during resting. History of heart attacks with stents. What is the solution?

I have been having severe burning pain in my arms (one arm or the other, it changes) but only at night when I am at rest. The pain feels like napalm is stuck to my arm, it s that severe. There is also tingling and occasional numbness. Lately it has been mostly my right arm. I have had two heart attacks with stent placements. Than kyou

Thanks for choosing HCM.
Your problem seems to be due to a mild compression of nerve roots at the Cervical[neck] level which needs to be assessed by a doctor / Spine surgeon to decide on the therapy.
You may also need a MRI of neck to find out what this could be?
However in the mean time take some rest & give hot fomentation to the neck & apply some pain reliever balms. You may take some vitamins containing B1,B6, B12.
Take care.
