Hi, <strongCustomer You should consult a doctor to evaluate your symptoms .

What you are feeling could be related to certain conditions like :

upper slipped back vertebral disk ( when one disk slips over the other ,the nerves that travel between these disks become compressed , producing these sensations )

Diabetes (elevated blood glucose levels produced by an hormonal deficiency of insulin )

altered electrolyte blood levels


herpes zoster ( a viral infection that can produce this tingling left nipple sensation ).


Your doctor will need performing some tests including : an upper spine MRI, nerve conduction studies , electrolyte blood tests and glucose blood test .

With these test results , your doctor will be able to determine the specific cause of your symptoms to give you the appropriate treatment .
