Strange sensation in arm

    A few weeks ago after a workout, I noticed a lot of discomfort when flexing my right wrist. I iced it and took ibuprofen for a few days, and the pain disappeared entirely. About a week later, I noticed that when I used a mouse with my right hand, it felt like an electrical current was passing down my arm and into my thumb. I switched to my left hand, but about two or three days later, I started feeling this electrical-like sensation in my right arm and thumb when I rested my right arm on an armrest or if I extended my right arm such as I might do when stretching. I also feel it now when I carry something in my right hand, type, or, starting today, drive.

    Has anyone experienced anything like this before?

    Agreed, something with a nerve. I would definitely go see a doc.
