Arm Pain Troubles
The symptoms of arm pain depend on what’s causing them. The pain may come and go, or it may always bother you. If you’ve had to deal with it for at least three months, then it’s considered chronic. Your pain may be burning, throbbing, aching, shooting, pinching stabbing or poking.
When you’re hurting, your symptoms may include:
- Difficulty moving or bending your arm
- Pain when you lift your arm
- Pain that intensifies with exertion
- Changing levels of pain
- Swelling accompanied by severe pain
- Numbness, weakness or tingling in your arm
- Pain in one or both arms
Why Your Arm Hurts All the Time
Chronic arm pain is a common condition in men that can make it difficult to focus on anything other than how uncomfortable you feel. You use your arms in so many ways and for so many different purposes, from lifting and reaching to grasping and writing. When it hurts, it can stop you in your tracks.
Chronic arm pain sometimes starts after a trauma or sports injury. Other times, it’s harder to determine what brought on your condition. Your dominant arm is the one you’re most likely to injure, especially if you use it for repetitive movements. Your pain can be acute or chronic:
- Acute pain comes on suddenly and is most often caused by an accident or injury. Acute pain may be short-lived.
- Chronic pain usually develops more slowly and lasts longer. It may keep coming back in episodes.
Diseases, such as arthritis or peripheral vascular disease, can cause chronic arm pain. The most common conditions that can lead to pain in your arm include:
- Joint injury, damage or disease
- Compressed nerve
- Nerve degeneration
- Muscle strains or sprains
- Ligament strains
- Bone fractures
