The pain is just in the arms none in my neck and I have taken ibuprofin but it does'nt seem to help so I'd rather not keep taking it.

The most likely reason for pain in your case is nerve pain which is occuring due to problem in your cervical vertebrae( cervical spondylosis),

In this problem your nerves are pressed by the bone leading to pain.

This can be diagnosed with some clinical tests like checking your neck flexibility, and getting an X rays of the neck.

In the mean time you can do

Take a long hot shower daily this may help releive the pain,

take light exercises.
