Various: If in left arm, intermittent, associated with exercise and familial high cholesterol then concern for angina pectoris and heart disease, and a doctor visit is all important. Muscle, tendon, and ligament injury, called "soft tissue" injury, is a consideration, is helped by rest and heat, and pain is aroused by use of the body part. An osteopath or physiatrist is the best specialists to diagnose.

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.
