Question Left arm numb and tingly

I'm a 35 year old male, no known medical conditions. On monday I woke up feeling kind of like I do when I sleep with one of my arms raised above my head (in this case it was my left arm). That was 5 days ago. My left arm still feels kind of numb especially from my elbow down. And I get the tingly sensations randomly also from my elbow down to my fingers. Other than that I feel good. All advice welcome.

Thank you,

Best to get this checked out by a neurologist. You might have pinched a nerve or slept on it wrong but go to a doc asap.

Yup... I had this once as well. And like Shauny said, panicked pretty righteously.
It went away after hurling my arm around, but if that doesn't help pretty right away, go see a doc.

Well it's now Tuesday and the arm feels fine. All by itself.

Still go see a doctor, my numbness has been going on for over a year now and we don't know why, it comes and goes.

definetly good idea to go the doctor immediatly especially with it being your left arm meaning the possible heart connection. Hopefully just a pinched nerve in the least. Either way, best to see a doctor.
