Pain In My Upper Arm
Few things: Most likely this is a referred pain from the shoulder. Check to see if the pain is increased with movements of the arm and shoulder. If so then this is likely a musculoskeletal problem. If the movements do not hurt then it could be a referred pain from the neck. If it has been going on for more than a few weeks, and is not any better, then go see your doc. ...Read more

Image a light, strong and healing flowing through your body. Let muscles relax as if little fists are letting go. Enjoy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
