Numbness in left arm - pain and no strength in the hand
Can knotted shoulders (really tight) cause poor circulation? My left arm has been numb and tingly for about 2 -3 days now the back of my left hand hurts and does not have any true grasping strength. Additionally, I have been experiencing bouts of light headedness.
My age is 49 if you need to know.
Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated. I do not have medical coverage and need to know the right questions to ask seeing as I am going to be paying a lot of money for the doctors visit.
