This is Dr. David

you could have pressure on your right median nerve going into your hand.

this can be at the wrist with carpel tunnel syndrome and swelling of your wrist

or could be pressure on the median nerve in your arm or arm pit or neck area where the nerves exit the spinal cord.

I'm glad you have been working on getting an appointment to see a doctor.

you should see a doctor as soon as possible.

you need to get your nerves examined

and you may need an MRI scan
