Pins and needles sensation down right arm into hand

Resolved Question:

This is Dr. David
this pins and needles can be caused by temporary blocked blood flow, like if you sleep on your arm and you can wake up with pins and needles
but this usually goes away when you stand up and blood flow resumes into your arm
or it could be due to a pinched nerve in your neck
an MRI scan of your neck spine can check for pinched nerves which can cause numbness and pins and needles sensation.
it can be difficult to get an MRI of your spine in the UK
but it can be done, but you have to see your GP doctor about your arm first.
do you have a GP doctor you can see?
