This is Dr. David
I am sorry you are having pain when raising your arm.
where is this pain? in your shoulder? your elbow?
you could have a pinched or entrapped nerve in your shoulder or bursitis or arthritis in your shoulder or elbow.
you might need a steroid injection to help decrease inflammation and pain
do you have a GP doctor who can look at this area of pain?
