Hello doctor,

I have tingling left arm. Thumb and index finger are somewhat numb. Skin lesions infect arm. I was told that they are not shingles. Bone at base where skull and spine meet is stiff and sore. On no medication. Taking Ibuprofen for pain.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Tingling sensation in the left arm can be due to nerve compression in the neck or in the arm. You will need a thorough physical exam followed by electroneuromyography study of the arms and legs and if possible, MRI of the cervical spine. Meanwhile, do not lift heavy weight and bend forward.
