My arms feel numb after just 5-10 minutes of intense

Patient

Q: My arms feel numb after just 5-10 minutes of intense arm lifting. Happens anywhere in the body and it's been happening for a year now. Today, after only a couple sets I couldn't even bench 40 lbs. my muscles undergo a ton of inflammation as soon as I start working out. The numbness lasted for just over 2 hrs today, though after the first 15 mins it significantly decreased. I also get very sick normally immediately after stopping a workout. Like, if I drink water after a workout I almost throw up. Anyways, I really need to get in shape and build muscle, as I've mostly been sitting around studying recently, and I've added on some decent weight. It's pretty necessary as of now.

THANKS!!!
