Muscle and Joint

 

Common causes of arm pain

The most common causes of arm pain are often nothing more than a simple sprain or strain or a trapped nerve.  But there are other causes.

Tennis elbow or golfer's elbow

These common conditions cause pain and discomfort around the outside of the elbow (tennis elbow) or the inside part of the elbow (golfer’s elbow). The clinical names for these kinds of elbow pain are dependent on the location: lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) or medial epicondilytis (golfers elbow). These conditions usually occur after strenuous overuse of the muscles and tendons of the forearm near the elbow joint. The pain can last for several weeks or months, but is not permanent.

Bursitis

A bursa is a fluid-filled sac under the skin, usually over joints such as the shoulder, elbow, knee, or hip. Its job is to act as a cushion between the tendons and bones, but it can cause pain and tenderness if it becomes inflamed. Bursitis is commonly caused by injury or repetitive movement. The main symptoms of bursitis are pain, inflammation and swelling in the affected area.

Angina 

Arm pain may occur as a result of angina. Angina is chest pain usually brought on by exercise, typically lasting a few minutes. It occurs when the blood supply to the muscles of the heart becomes restricted, usually due to the arteries becoming hardened and narrowed. Angina pain is best described as a heavy, dull pain or tightness in the chest that can sometimes spread to the left arm, neck, jaw, or back. Please seek medical advice if you think you are experiencing this type of pain.

Repetitive strain injury (RSI)

RSI is a general term used to describe pain in the muscles, tendons, and nerves as a result of repetitive movement and overuse. RSI pain is usually felt in the forearms, elbows, wrists, hands, neck and shoulders. RSI symptoms usually develop gradually, and include pain, aching, tenderness, throbbing, stiffness, tingling, numbness, weakness, or cramp. A variety of activities and occupations can lead to RSI, including computer work or assembly line work.
