Arm pain: Pain with arm movement is likely the arm/shoulder. Pain with neck movement suggests nerve pain from a herniated disc. Neither urgent if not progressing. Ok to try some nsaids, ice/heat for a couple days. Typically, these usually improve over several weeks. Pain that does not deserves a doc evaluation.

Radicular pain: If the pain is coming from your neck down the shoulder into your arm the most likely source is the cervical spine. It is also possible if the pain starts at her elbow and goes in your hand that the pain is coming from the ulnar nerve itself. Only a thorough history and physical exam by your physician can determine the true cause of your symptoms.
