Pins & Needles

I've been experiencing annoying pins & needles down my left arm for the last 2 or 3 days.
I notice it when I put weight on the shoulder, say when I rest upon an arm rest.
The P&N goes away within a few minutes after I move my arm away, ie take the weight off my shoulder.
Therefore I'm assuming it must be a problem in my shoulder, eg a pinched nerve or something in my shoulder or neck?
I'm 53 yrs old. I also have some arthritic pain in my big toe, (maybe psoriasis arthritis) so also thought it might be spreading to my shoulder.
My GP is a waste of time, so any suggestions?
