Cardiology Questions Answered by Verified Cardiologists.
In order for me to help you I need more information: your age, gender, if you have any history of heart problem, are you diabetic and if you have any kind of chest pair or chest discomfort? Would any thing, like exertion or emotional stress make your symptoms worse?
Your symptom, tingling within of your left arm, with no other chest symptoms, is unlikely to be heart related and does not sound emergent. If you had primary chest pain/discomfort that extends to the left arm and is associated with numbness, along with other symptoms, then that's a diffrent story and you will be advised to seek immediate medical attention. Although, in general, females tend to have vague symptoms as a manifestation of a heart attack, your symptoms is unlikely to be the case. Tingling of the hands/arms is common and as an isolated symptom is usually benign and non-emergent. If it persists, then you should follow up with our doctor early in the week
Should you develop any associated chest pain/discomfort, shortness of breath, or start sweating with exertion etc. then you should seek immediate medical attention at the closest emergency room. Not at this point though
You did tell me it is your left arm :-) The answer is the same.
Well, the heart related symptoms typically start at the chest and extends to the left arm, in form of pain, aches or discomfort, and tingling/numbness might accompany these symptoms along with other features as well. You have isolated tingling of the left forearm with no associated chest symptoms. That's why it is very unlikely to be heart related
It does not sound stroke related either, but if gets intense and you develop other classic stroke symptoms (arm/leg weakness, speech difficulty, etc. then you should seek medical attention.
That is one of many possibilities but your family doctor will be able to help you with that after he/she examines you
You are very welcome.
