    Evening. Was there any trauma to your arm? Do you sleep on that side of your body? Did you do any heavy lifting recently? If there is a trauma to that side of the body, you should have it checked out by a doctor and have an Xray done. If you sleep on that side, you should change your posture or change your mattress to a softer one. Cheers

    I dnt know wat u meant by a trauma but at times I sleep on my right side. It's just dat, it is somehow frequent for like 3 days now. Hope it is not a sign of stroke pls

    Trauma means something hitting you or falling down on the arm. Are you hypertensive? You should have your blood pressure checked. Stroke is not a process that happens over a long period of times, it's sudden and usually causes weakness of both the upper and lower limb. So what you are having is unlikely to be a stroke. Cheers
