In brief: Arm Alarm
Chronic pain of this type could indicate a herniation of a cervical disc in the neck, a possible vascular problem (such as a clot) or other peripheral impingement issue.
It is worth obtaining an xray and/or additional imaging after a good examination by a physician. If you can't recall a specific injury and the exam and imaging are nonspecific, a metabolic evaluation should also be considered.
