Dear Sheila, you need to answer a few questions first which will help me assist you in a better way.
How severe is the pain on a scale of 1 to 10?
Any treatment taken so far?
Do you have history of neck pain?
Recent history of exercise/bearing heavy loads from the affected arm?
Any concurrent medical illness like diabetes or heart disease?
There is no chest pain or shortness of breath associated with this pain right?
