Hi, I have pain in my upper left arm, that comes and goes, but does not get worse with arm movement. I am extreamly tired as well!

Arm pain: Your symptom is nonspecific but still could be due to muscular strain or inflammation, or tendonitis even if unaffected by arm movements. Another possibility is impingement of a nerve due to disc or spur problems in your neck. Tenderness over the upper arm favors tendonitis or a muscular cause. If cold and or hot applications and Advil (ibuprofen) type medication don't help, see an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more
