As the title says I'm experiencing pins and needles in my left arm. The top of my shoulder feels like ive been punched.

I've been experiencing it for a while now, even been to a&e and drs about it with a number of other things and they can't find anything wrong. I've had 6 ECGs, all of which have apparently been fine.

So I'm now trying to think what it may be.

Anyone got any thoughts, would be much appreciated.

Probably cancer of some form. If you ask TSR for a diagnosis it usually turns out to be cancer of some form.

Although google informs me that one cause of chronic pins and needles can be radiation poisoning, so maybe it's that?

I get that sometimes. Are you on a laptop for a long period of time? That could be causing it. Try squeezing a stress ball - usually helps me

I dont use my laptop much these days, I mainly use my iPhone. I've been trying to find a stress ball, to see if that'll work. It's such a horrid pain and it's annoying.

You went to a&e for pins and needles? :lolwut: How long you had it?

I had it for ages once after smashing my elbow, doctor just said it was a trapped nerve and it went away on its own. But not before I scared myself loads reading about the fact they sometimes have to do surgery to fix it :afraid:

Lol nooo. I've been having other problems for the past 7weeks, and the pins and needles is one of the problems I'm having.
I was thinking maybe it's trapped nerve and it'll settle on it's own, but it's annoying and at times painful. :-/.

7 weeks is a long time, mine lasted 5 but was very annoying. An anti-inflammatory drug might help but you probably already tried that.

No I've been unwell for 7 weeks with a variety of other things but the pins and needles is one of the symptoms. My Dr told me to take an anti inflammatory and I admit it did settle a Little. But he's since told me to stop taking that and take a gastric tablet, due to other issues that are going on and the pins and needles is driving me insane.
