Left arm, wrist and hand feel tight. Weakness in my left hand.

37 yo male, woke up this morning and noticed that my left arm, wrist and hand feel tight. I am getting ready and was buttoning my pants I had no strength in my left hand to help button. I am at work and I try to pick up a spool or a drink bottle the more I try to grin the more it curls in, what could this be? I've had 4 mini strokes within the past 5 years, I'm scared that, that is what is going on now!

Hi!
If you have a history of four mini strokes, then this should be looked into first and immediately. Other possibilities of your symptoms are a pinched nerve in the neck, pinched nerve in the arm pit, infection of nerve (neuritis) or lupus, or vitamin B12 deficiency.
Please consult a doctor immediately. Take care!
