I have had this same condition on and off for about 5 years. I had it every year for about 3 years for about a month each time. Then,no reoccurance for 3 years and it was back again in my left arm this summer. I went on a detox diet this summer with no effect at all, so I don't think that it is an allergic reaction. the onlyt thing that helps is icing. I did have a very stiff neck on the left side
( due to tennis and golf, most likely) and had two massages in my shoulders and neck. I considered getting a chiropractic adjustment as well. The condition is subsiding, however, and I have not had a tingling, stinging sensation for a few days now, so I think that it may be subsiding.
I am thinking that it my condition be caused my nerve impingement. I will definitely go to a chiropractor soon, and hope that I don't have another reoccurence in the near future. It is so frustrating !!!
