Thank you very much for your response. I should have, however, clarified my symptoms. I do not consider this as numbness or weakness but a tingling sensation like pins and needles that runs along the inside of my arm from shoulder to thumb, sometimes to the point of pain. It also occurs immediately after sitting down with my arm at my side and will generally go away when standing or laying down. My stroke was also caused by blockage in my Carotid Artery if this information helps.
