Hello,

Cold feeling sensation is caused due to nerve impingement in it's path.

You should gentle massage with muscle relaxant ointment.

Also apply warm compresses.

It can be possible to have some muscle weakness in arms after child birth.

Even carry newborn baby or poor posture can cause nerve irritation.

So maintain a good posture while breastfeeding.

This symptom is not related to heart so you needn't to worry.

If your symptoms get worse over the time then consult your doctor for a clinical examination for further evaluation and management.

Use reply to let me know if you have further queries.
Please to not forget a positive rating.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
