Burning pains are usually from a nerve. The area you describe, down the back of the arm, that is the C8, T1, T2 nerves mostly.

So, somewhere along the course of the nerve(s), there is pressure being applied to the nerve. It could be anywhere from the spine to the peripheral nerve.

If it does not go away, then you should probably see someone about it.

Good luck.
