Am I justified or just stupid? (Medical Thing)
Mr. GMan, I love the way you talkUsing 40 words where 4 will doRegistered Userregular
I'm having a problem with my left arm, where my hand has a sort of tingling and slight numb feeling to it, and my upper arm varies from feeling just uncomfortable to some pain from the shoulder to the elbow. This has been going on for about a week, and it's a condition that's been coming and going, but the last few days it's been a constant thing. I'm starting to think I should go see a doctor, but my parents feel that it's no big deal, and I'm blowing this far out of proportion because I've never had any real problems like this before, and that I should just relax and wait for it to go away.
I continue to be really anxious and nervous all the time, because I'm not convinced this is a minor issue. Just today I was woken up at 5 AM with my left hand almost entirely numb, though it went away once I just gave it a good shake. I know there's a very good chance I'm just being stupid, but am I right for being very concerned about this, or is this actually a very simple issue I just need to wait out?
