Should I get a heart check up for numbness on my left side?

I have been having pins & needles and numbness in the pinky side of my left hand for a few weeks now on and off. I am 45 years old, female, blood pressure 120/70, 57kgs, normal cholesterol , non-smoker, don t drink & exercise regularly and eat very healthily. I can t put it down to anything like injury or RSI and I am aware that left side stuff may be heart related, can you give me some advice please? Should I be rushing off to have a heart check?

Your symptoms suggest a probable cervical spondylosis (due to calcium depletion in your cervical spine area).Try sleeping without a ninpillow and some neck muscle strengthening exercises,like turning your head from side to side slowly after getting up in the morning.You should also check your T3,T4 and TSH as low thyroid hormone levels can also cause such symptoms
