4 days ago I started having random stinging pain in my left arm that has stayed and a dull aching pain in my jaw thats somewhat nauseating. ?

There are other possibilities, but the serious things need to be ruled out first. ...Read more

1wk of mild constant upper arm pain w/ spontaneous bouts of intense stabbing/stinging pain.Not affected by movement/touch.No trauma.No other symptom.?

Varies: Multiple potential causes, I would not hesitate to be seen.

Sudden upper left arm pain with no injury? 22 y.O female. Achy, comes and goes, burns and stings. Felt in back and neck as well. Osteosarcoma? Strain?

Nerve Pinch: This sounds like a pinched nerve in the neck. Although it could be other less common causes. If you have no other medical problems: infection history, cancer history and no significant weakness then give the pain 6-8 weeks to improve. Nsaids can be beneficial (unless you have kidney problems). Talk to your doctor if not improving over time. ...Read more
