Excruciating Sharp Burning Pain In Upper Arm Muscle
What causes the burning sensation in my arm where the muscle on the outside of my arm connects to my elbow?
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

You need to get examined by a doctor to get the correct diagnosis ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sharp burning pain under right armpit only when I move my arm a certain way and nit all the time. Just once in awhile. Very painful.
Shoulder pain: To help more would need to know the "certain way" you move it Armpit pain is usually from the joint. Intermittent pain would indicate a capsular tear. If it gets bothersome enough to consider surgery (arthroscopic, outpatient)then get an MRI and see a surgeon. Otherwise avoid using it the "Certain way" for a few weeks to let it heal.

See doctor: Hard to say what this is as yet although such symptoms do require further investigation. Htn in 17 yo should be investigated to rule out secondary causes of HTN (like renovascular causes, hormonal causes). Pcos pts have a high incidence of Insulin resistance and increased risk for CAD due to a constellation of atherosclerotic risk factors. Check echo, consider pericardial disease, dvt, etc. ...Read more

I have a burning pain feeling on the upper arm near the elbow going up wards - it does not go away at all it is a constant burning feeling ?
Physical exam rec'd : The two points you describe ("burning", and essentially a radiating pattern) would definitely put the concept of a possible nerve irritation in my differential. I would definitely see a physician about it if it persists or other new changes develop. A physical exam involving sensory, muscle, and reflex testing is warranted. ...Read more

What causes a burning sensation in the viens in my fore arms? Also the muscles in my calfs keep locking up.
Don't know: I have never heard of burning in forearm veins unless something has been injected into them. Assuming you are not doing that (and maybe especially if you are) then you should see a clinician to find the cause of this and the leg cramps. Probably need blood tests as well. Meanwhile, keep your arms above your heart level and try some heat on them as well as your leg muscles to see if it helps. ...Read more
Burning sensation on skin of upper arm/shoulder for 2 weeks, but nothing there, skin looks completely normal. No rashes or other symptoms. What is it?
Neuropathy: Sounds like a nerve problem, so we'd call it neuropathy. It can be caused by anything damaging a nerve. Shingles or herpes can do this, but if it has been going on for 2 weeks I'd expect there to be spots or bumps or something showing on the skin by now. It can also be caused by your immune system attacking the nerve or by the nerve being pinched in your spine or elsewhere. See your doc for help. ...Read more

Left outer elbow joint very painful (tennis elbow)? Hurting for sometime and now pain inside of upper arm to armpit. Why? Sometimes burning pain.
Suggestions: Hard to pin down just one answer here, as you could possess an extensor tendinitis associated with peripheral nerve compression at elbow or even shoulder. Could consider thoracic outlet syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome or even radial nerve problem. See orthopedic surgeon, maybe get EMG study, and find out what is present so that therapy will be focused. ...Read more
