Hoping you can tell me, is hurting arm common if you have anxiety disorder?

No, but...: Anxiety does not cause arm pain per se, however it does manifest itself in a myriad of ways, and can cause symptoms that are not in fact there, or magnify ones that are minor. They could be completely coincident and unrelated. A visit with a mental health professional is advised, as you can be helped!
