What could cause numbness in your right fingers and arm?

I have not injured myself and yet I have numbness in my hand and arm.

The nerves that supply the arm could be compressed by a tumor or other problem causing the numbness. Since it is located only in one arm the nerves that supply that arm could be compromised.

Either you have been sitting on your arm and it is asleep, or it is the first sign that you are having heart problems.

Numbness in the right arm and fingers could result for a variety of reasons. One of the more common reasons could be that there is a pinched nerve in the spine. Another cause could be the sign of an oncoming stroke.
