mild numbness and tingling in arms

Hi, I am 26 year old male. I workout regularly 6 days a week (been working out since 4 years). Recently i changed my routine to lifting heavy weights which suits my strength. After 3 weeks of heavy training i was having mild symptoms of dizziness and stiffness in my neck region plus mild numbness tingly feeling in my arms which goes to my index finger and thumb. My arms are not always numb or tingly but it comes and goes specially after a workout or at night. These things have been bothering me since a week now. I also noticed in past week that overhead exercises bothers me. I stopped weight training for now and doing only Cardio. I never had such issues before.
Any help would be a sight of relief. Thanks Peace.

Sounds like pinched nerve! I suggest seeing your doctor.

It's not how long!!
A pinched nerve occurs when a nerve is damaged in some way and unable to fully send its signals. It is caused when a nerve gets compressed, which can be due to a herniated disc, arthritis, or bone spurs. You can also get a pinched nerve from other situations and activities such as injury, poor posture, repetitive motions, sports, hobbies, and obesity. Pinched nerves can occur all over the body, although they are most common in the spine, neck, wrists, and elbows. I said it sounds like a pinched nerve! Your doctor will determine if it is.
