What does it mean when your right arm hurts? It's like pain gathers at my shoulder and then shoots down to my hand.
Possible nerve damag: Something called the brachial plexus is where a lot of nerves which come out of your neck cross cross and go into your armpit and then down your arm to your finger tips.

The tissues of the arm are prone to swelling and that can cause the "right arm" pain and tingling fingers. One would suggest elevation of the arm to decrease swelling, squeezing a nerf ball, 20 min ice and 20 min off. With decrease swelling, the pain should subside.
