Arm Pain Causes
There is a large range of problems which may cause arm pain. This can range from joint injuries to compressed nerves and depending on the cause, arm pain can start suddenly or develop over time. Arm pain typically originates from a problem in your neck or upper spine. Pain that radiates into your left arm, can even be a sign of a heart attack or stroke.
