Orthopedic eval. If you have not seen anyone yet i would start with your family doctor. Otherwise you may wish to see an orthopedic specialist.
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.
