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.
