    This is most likely a result of nerve root compression and possibly even local irritation in the affected arm. You should discuss this with your doctor as it is also important to exclude more serious neurological disorders like a stroke or the attacks that precede a stroke, known as a TIA, especially if you are experiencing dizziness and related symptoms.
