Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with experience in treating all neurological and other medical conditions and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

First I will ask few questions so that I can gather additional information related to your health;

1) Is it the whole right arm, or part of it?

2) Is there weakness too in the arm, or do you feel it is just asleep?

3) Any symptom over the right face or right leg?

4) Any possibility of sleeping on the right arm in the night?

5) Any speech difficulties?

6) Any neck pain?

7) How is the blood pressure control recently?

Best regards,

Neuro Doctor
