Just experienced a sudden sharp very intense pain to my right arm. What is this and so i need to be concerned?

Just experienced a sudden sharp very intense pain to my right arm. What is this and so i need to be concerned?

Maybe, probably not: One random sharp pain without other symptoms is unlikely something serious. Keep an eye on it and be aware of other signs of illness/pain. Random pains like this that go away without treatment are just that...Random. Random nerves firing, random brain activity - no absolute answer. Good luck & i hope it doesn't come back! ...Read more

2weeks ago fell on right arm wrong.Now, everytime I move it towards my left body I get extreme sharp pain in right shoulder other thrn that its fine.?

Time for an exam: Severe pain that is persisting 2 weeks after a traumatic event (your fall) warrants a trip to the doctor. If nothing else you should get an examination of your shoulder to check for a possible rotator cuff tear, and an x-ray to make sure nothing is broken. ...Read more

Pain in right arm bicep only hurts when I'm about to go to sleep. Sharp pain last for 10mins had pain for 4 months already  ?

Pain in arm: It sounds like you may have tendinitis of the right bicep. Press over the tendon. If it hurts that will be the diagnosis. If the pain worsens or changes you need to see your doctor for Xrays and evaluation. You can apply heat to the area and try ibuprofen but do not take ibuprofen for a long time and be careful because it can cause gastritis and kidney problems. ...Read more

 i have had a UTI for about 2 years now witch has caused me to get Ecoli also anemia I keep getting sharp pain in my stomach I  have pain in right arm?

Here are some ...: UTIs in most women are uncomplicated, itself alone should not cause anemia. But the use of antibiotics & some drugs + poor overall health or insidious GI bleeding may induce anemia. The pain in right arm and stomach indicates some irritation to regional nerve endings such as those disorders in regional joints, muscles, or nerves. So, seek pro-evaluation and counseling for detail timely. ...Read more

Sudden, severe sharp pain, spasms in my entire right arm. Pain began in neck, then traveled down shoulder, down to wrist. Arm pulsates with pain. Help?

Sudden, severe sharp pain, spasms in my entire right arm. Pain began in neck, then traveled down shoulder, down to wrist. Arm pulsates with pain. Help?

Sounds like: Nerve irritation or injury that could be coming from your neck seem a very likely explanation for these symptoms. Assessing if neck position change the symptoms might help. A good neurological history and competent examination should sort this out. The pulsating might also suggest a vascular contribution though that can be a pain associated with nerve compression as well. ...Read more

How do I no if i dislocated, broke, or severly internally bruised my elbow earlier this morn i awoke with a sudden sharp pain with pressure on the right side (with elbow facing floor) of my elbow of my right arm and has increased throughout the day in2 th

Hello, : Hello, the best way to confirm a dislocation or any other bone/joint issues is with x-rays or ct scan - that will allow your doctor to be certain about that. Your history and physical examination are also very improtant, so tell everything to your doctor. The informations you left are not enough to make a clear diagnosis of your problem. Go to an er or a walking clinic for your initial evaluation. Best of luck. ...Read more
