In brief: It depends

Without knowing what part of your arm hurts, this is a difficult question to answer. It could be anything from tendonitis, to muscle strain/sprain, or arthritis.
See your doctor so that he or she can determine the cause of the pain and decide what treatment is best for you.

In brief: Arm pain

The most common cause of shoulder pain when throwing a ball is bursitis.
A pinched nerve can also cause similar symptoms.
