Hello!

From your history I advise you to consult a neurologist ..

Intermittent tingling sensation of the right arm sounds to be of a neurological cause ...

It could be from nerve root compression in the neck....

It could be from compression of the brachial plexus ( a nerve web network that goes from neck under collar bone toward the arm..)

It may be that a nerve entrapment problem in the arm may be the cause ..

You would benefit to see neurologist for evaluation...

This may include physical exam and detailed history of symptoms ...

This evaluation may include an MRI of the neck and possible nerve conduction study

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

If my answers have been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD

you don't feel it's related to a heart issue
Doctor: Anthony Bray, MD, Doctor replied 2 years ago

Hello!

No it does NOT sound to be heart related from your descriptions ...

This does not fit with an angina pattern .....

I hope that this is helpful

Best regards,

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.
