Re: left arm numbness

The problem in your neck can be a definite cause. The nerves that exit the neck or cervical spine supply the upper extremity. If you have a disc bulge that is touching the nerve, that is enough to cause the nerve to become inflamed and cause cervical radiculitis. another common problem is called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS). I suggest you see a chiropractor. A chiropractor can evaluate this and determine if this is coming from your neck or your shoulder/arm or TOS.
