    I have a horrible dull aching pain in my right arm and it travels all the way to my hand.  My hand feels like it has pins and needles. Do you have any idea what this could be?

    Many things can cause pins and needles sensations including some sort of trauma, nerve compression, etc. This is certainly something you need to see your doctor about soon. In the meantime you might want to try Health Central's Symptom checker to get some idea of what this might be. It's on the left hand side of the below page.

    Just a question? Are you right handed.  I've had carpal tunnel syndrome that occurred just from using my right hand in a repetitive motion such as using a computer mouse, writing, etc...  Something to look into..  I would usually elevate and ice it down.  It always subsided within a couple of days.  Hope this helps!  Good Luck!
