one thing you might want to have checked is Vasculitis. I had pain, tingling, and numbness in a hands, fingers, and toes about two years ago. after months of neurology visits I was in getting remicade one day. when the nurse checked my blood pressure she couldn't get one. She said, thats funny, and did it again. Still not bp. So she switched arms, got a bp, and didn't say another word about it. When i was at home that night complaining to my mom about the pain and numbness in my arm i told her about the lack of bp. She freaked and said call your dr. So i called the doc on call at my pcp and he said go to the ER now because you might have a blood clot. After 3 days in the hospital it was determined that i didn't have a clot but that I had Vasulities, which is exactly what it sounds like. Inflammation in the veins. My gastro said that because of my whacked immune system i developed inflammation in a vein in my upper R arm. They put me on some drug, i can't remember and I had to have an ultrasound done on my arm about every month for a year to check it. I also had to be on warfarin. It can be dangerous if not taken care of. Didn't mean to make this so long, I just wanted to warn you.
