It is always advisable to seek medical attention if you are worried about the symptoms you are experiencing. They will be able to look at your medical history and advise you accordingly.

If you are experiencing a dull and squeezing pain in the middle of your chest or have been finding yourself getting very sweaty or breathless - go to the hospital immediately as you could be having a heart attack!

That said, as you have been able to sit down and write about your symptoms online, it is unlikely you are having a heart attack and your symptoms could point to a number of other conditions. These may include:

- Trapped nerves: You may have damaged the nerves in your neck or back and this is causing the pain and tingling feeling that can also be caused by spinal fluid leakage.

- Poor circulation: If your arm feels cold to the touch when you are feeling the tingling sensation, this could be a sign of poor circulation where the blood is struggling to reach your arm.

- Pins and needles: This is very harmless and is caused when you have been lying or sitting in a particular position that has caused the blood to not be able to reach the arm. This can be resolved by shaking your arm and stretching.

- Psychosomatic: This means the symptoms can arise when your mind becomes linked to the body. For example, if you are feeling stressed or agitated this may cause symptoms to manifest themselves.

There are a number of other conditions your symptoms could be describing, so it is advisable to go get yourself checked out by a medical professional.

Any burning or tingling sensation most likely is a nerve issue. I had burning tingling hands and went to chiropractor. Turns out that years of working with my hands over my head caused a pinched nerve in neck. I also had same prob in thigh. Damaged nerve from carrying tool belt on hip.
