Arm pain: If there has been no injury and If the pain is in the joint at either the elbow or shoulder, tendinitis is likely. Often a tender spot is present. Treatment consists of cold alternating with hot(not boiling) applications, rubbing in liniment like bengay and taking anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve. If symptoms persist or worsen see your physician for evaluation, advice and treatmen
