Thank you for the information. Since you mentioned you have TMJ and your neck is tight along with the gaming, it could be that you have pinched something in your arm from the repetitive movement of the gaming or anything else that you may be doing at other times. You could try taking a muscle relaxer to see if that helps with the muscle tightness. You might want to get a massage and/or see a chiropractor to have an adjustment to release/relax those muscles that are affecting your shoulder, neck, and arm muscles and nerves. Back off of the repetitive arm and hand movements for a while to give those muscles and nerves a break. I don't know if you use anything for your TMJ, however it can cause your neck to be tight, have headaches, and toothaches. There are mouth devices called NTI device which helps with the TMJ problem. WEaring a sports mouth guard at night as well to help with the TMJ. Believe it or not, TMJ can cause problems as you describe with your arm and neck. If your hand or arm change colors or remain numb and cold, you should have it checked by a doctor. To check circulation, you can also squeeze the ends of your fingertips and release to watch the color come back to the fingertips. You can check you pulse in your wrist by placing your index finger and middle finger from your left hand gently over the underside of your right wrist and feel for a pulsing sensation. You should feel i just below your thumb area on the wrist. This would tell you whether your circulation is a problem or not.
