First up, an introduction: I'm Alex, from Singapore, and I'm 22 this year.

Now, for why I joined these forums: for about a week and a half now I have been having some numb feeling (or, to be more exact, a decreased feeling of sensation) on an area on my left arm. Today, after going out cycling my left arm is also feeling slightly weak.

I had been trying to get to a doctor, but - I'm unemployed currently and am financially dependent on my family - my dad refuses to bring me to a doctor for a diagnosis, insisting that it will be a waste of money. He refuses to listen to anything I say, waving it off as a matter of non-importance.

Having found these forums, I decided to join up and ask for some advice and thoughts; if it is serious I might be able to use this to convince him that I do need help here. Does anyone know what this might be, and if it might be anything serious?

Just some additional information: I am currently taking Clomipramine (two tablets a night) for reasons irrelevant to the discussion right now (I will provide details later on if necessary). The numbness started the morning after I missed my dose. Also, I experienced an episode of dizziness a few days ago while simply sitting in my chair, though I think that episode might also be related to tiredness I was experiencing at that time.
