Tingling in one arm???

I've seen several posts about pinched nerves but I'm not sure if that's what I have or not.  Last Friday I've been experiencing a very slight tingling (like my arm is asleep) on just my left arm...from my elbow down to my hand.  There hasn't been any pain and it's ONLY my left arm...nothing else.  It seems to almost come and go at times.  Again, it's  only very slight tingling/numbness, not completely asleep.

Could this be a pinched nerve?  Carpel Tunnel?  Something else?  Is this treatable....something I should rush in to the doctor for or give it some time?

Thanks!

Hello HuskerWebhead,
What is your age?Are you hypertensive?Was there any neck injury or fall?You should get your blood presuure levela monitored.Also consult  a neurologist and go in for a MRI.There could be several causes like pinched nerve,herniated disc,capal tunnel syndrome,canal stenosis which require complete investigations.

There was no fall.  I was working on a retaining wall prior to the symptoms so there was alot of heavy lifting...but no injuries or pain during the work.  I'm 32, just had blood pressure checked last month and they said it was "prefect."  But my cholesterol was high.

Hello HuskerWebhead
The lifting of heavy weights might be causing the tingling.There is possibility of nerve compression and you need to consult a neurophysician and get your condition evaluated.You can also consult a pain clinic for the tingling.Avoid exertion,do not strain your back and keep your posture straight.
