pain inside my arms
i too fill pain inside my arms in different ways. could be one arm at a time or both arms at the same time. it also can begin to show mildly and vanish before seven seconds. other times it lasts more than 10 or 15 minutes. it can happen sitting or lying in bed it also wakes me just before the pain begins. at times the pain hurts so much that i can't think and can't get relief until it's gone. lately when i fill it coming i move my arms vigorously in all directions like fist fighting or exercising until it recedes and is gone. what causes that?.

Unfortunately, when a patient's symptoms are so varied, it is very difficult to determine what is causing it.

If you can notice a pattern, or determine what seems to bring it on, then an orthopedic surgeon will have a better shot at figuring out what is causing it.

Sometimes, it helps for the patient to keep a journal of his/her symptoms, what causes the symptoms, what makes them worse/better, how long they last, any assoicated symptoms, and the like; a pattern will start to show up.

Then it is easier to determine the underlying cause.

Sorry that I cannot be more specific.

Good luck. Wishing you the best.
