left arm numbness

Dear Sir/Mam

I have been having problems with my left arm lately especially after I take a nap or when I wakeup my it feels as if there is no blood in my left hand and my left arm is feeling extreamly weak and numb. I know it is not the way I do sleep since I always sleep on my right side or back, I did all my blood work done which did come, out ok with an EKG so I know it is not a heart problem. After I did my MRI, there were mild buldges on e3, e4, e5 and one of them was hitting a nerve but it was not pinching it. I also notice that it gets alot worse after I do Physical Training, I am in the army so I can not get out of it. The army doctor here said that it has nothing to do with my neck and it must be a nerve on my arm. I am really confused and don't know what to do.

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
