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

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

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?

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

Swelling : Swelling and loss of motion can be the result of trauma. That can mean a severe bruise or fracture. Swelling can also radially occur with infection, a joint problem such as gout or arthritis, which will also rapidly add to difficulty moving if swelling occurs rapidly. Loss of motion is a cause for concern and you should be seen by a health care provider and be examined and get x-rays for a start. The elbow is very sensitive to loss of motion when swollen and even a small hairline fracture in the radial head, a bone on the elbow, if not treated properly will result in difficulty extending the elbow fully. ...Read more
