Hello and Welcome to Just Answer.
Thank you for the question. Answers given are for informational purposes only and are not meant to replace an exam by an in-person.

I am Dr. Sohaib, a Medical Internist (who deals with diseases of all the organ systems of body) and I will do my best to find an answer for you.

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?
