Tingling in left arm, hand, numbness in right arm. Causes and treatment?

Over a period of time I have been experiencing a tingling sensation in my left arm & hand . I often notice it when I am at rest as opposed to being physically active but not always. I have on one or two occasions I felt the same tingling (like when your foot or hand goes to sleep ) in my right arm and hand as well. Should I see a doctor - it seems so mild.

Thanks for your Query,
Your tingling sensation was due to pressure causes on nerves that supply your upper limbs.
It may be due to a temporary pressure like your work,position of sitting, sleeping usage of limbs etc.
There were also possibility of cervicle rib causes pressure on brachial plexus.
B1B6B!2 Deficiency also causes tingling & numbness.
So consult your doctor he will diagnose it & suggest treatment accordingly.
