Answer Hi Mylee,
The importance of a diagnosis cannot be overstated. There are vascular causes for your arm to be numb and cold. There are neurological reasons for your hand to be numb. I have many questions. Do you wake up at night with numbness? Does it get worse with activity? Does it get worse with overhead activities? Does your neck hurt? Is there any shooting electric sensation? Does your hand feel swollen and stiff? Have you had an MRI?
I will need more information.
Finding a chiropractic physician to examine you is a good idea.
