Weakness in left arm

A few weeks ago I experienced pain/weekness all over my left arm for just a few minutes. I contacted my hematologist and he said doesn't sound like a clot, may be heart related. He did not seem concerned.

Anyone have any advice? Should I have contacted my rheumatologist instead? Or do I need to get a Cardio doc. I have APS but I am only 29 yo.

  • Hi there. I had a similar thing last year also in my left arm. In my case it turned out to be a trapped nerve in my neck. I would always edge on caution though, and would get it checked out. I always say 'better to be safe than sorry'!! Let us know how you get on :o)

  • Hi. I've had this kind of thing for two reasons: trapped nerve in the neck; or TIA.

    You should certainly get it checked. out.

    Best regards.

  • Hi there, yes to the two replies you have had above mine, with this condition an eye always has to be kept, hope it has gone away now, this particular symptom. MaryF x

  • I too would agree to possible trapped nerve or Tia.....I've experienced those symptoms plus others in both cases.

    I still have problems in both my shoulders due to falls & gardening injury! Always have trapped nerves can't seem to make them stay away!! Sounds similar? Ask gp if symptoms persist x

  • Hi there,

    I agree with the others. See an APS-doctor.
