Hi,

Im 16 years old and I work two part time jobs at any given point in the year. Recently I have experienced a numbing tingling and pins and needles in my left arm. im about average size heigh and weight for my age. So i dont believe its my weight thats an issue. I just wanted to know if I should seek Medical help or just see if it subsides.

Proximal peripheral neuropathy is one possible cause of tingling, numbness and pain in arm but it needs longstanding poorly controlled diabetes to manifest. cervical disc prolapsed causing compressive neuropathy, spondylolisthesis, trauma etc. certain chronic systemic diseases like multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis may present with tingling and numbness arm. Vitamin deficiencies like B12,  B6  can also present with peripheral neuropathies .Consult your neurologist with these possibilities. Get an MRI spine done to look for any disc lesions and bony causes of compression neuropathy. A complete blood sugar profile including glycosylated hemoglobin will tell about the glycemic control over the last 3 months. Take care.
