The joints in my left hand are stiff and sore, wrist is also somewhat sore, and shooting pain up to my elbow. Pain is aching, though may burn in AM.

carpel tunnel

Strength_training
It sounds like a repetitive stress injury such as carpel tunnel syndrome. You must ice the area, take NSAIDS, and avoid the stressful use of that hand. If all else fails, see a hand doctor

Large lump at the top of my arm, with intermittent shooting pain through my elbow and wrist. Can a lipoma cause pain or is this something more?

Nerve compression

The shooting pain through your elbow and wrist could be related to a compressed nerve. OK to check with your doc for an exam and opinion about that lump and whether it is causative.

Moving my arm a sharp shooting pain from elbow to wrist. I'm a heavy equipment operator. Very physical job, repetitive arm movements. Home remedies?

Try a brace

Nursemaids_elbow
Try a tennis elbow brace near your elbow. This shouldn't cause any problems and may relieve the pain. If it doesn't work then see your primary doctor for an eval.

I work a desk job & have started to get a aching/shooting pain in my elbow where it would rest on a desk. Is this tennis elbow? I'm also doubjointed.

See orthopedist

Tennis_elbow
Tennis elbow pain is along the outside of the elbow which is worse with gripping such as a gallon of milk. Pain at the back of the elbow may be due to irritation of the ulnar nerve (funny bone), bursitis, bone spur etc. See an orthopedist.

I fell on my left elbow 9 months ago. An x-ray showed no breaks. Now there's a burning sensation, limited mobility, unable to lift, and shooting pain down my forearm. I can't sleep. Now what?

Maybe nerve damage

Extremity-joint-elbow
It sounds like neuropathic pain. The ulnar nerve runs by your elbow it could be dislocating or damaged possibly. I would see an orthopedist and have MRI. And ultrasound exam done

When I straighten my arm, sharp shooting pain & weakness from elbow to hand. 40yr old construction worker. Very physical job.

See orthopedics

Pinched_nerve
Sounds like a cervical radiculopathy (neck problem) people call this a "pinched nerve" weakness is concerning though and should be seen by a medical professional
