Pain that aggravates with arm movement is highly suggestive of muscle spasm , and this is not because of trauma .

It would be ideal to have pain killer along with muscle relaxant for 5-7 days along with Physiotherapy .

Tab Ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day , along with Tab Tizanidine 2 mg twice a day will be good for you .

Please proceed as I advised you .

Good luck .

positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks ,

Do you think it can be other than muscle spasm? My arm hurts when I move my left hand. I have never had this type of pain before.

Yes I am sure this is related to Musculoskeletal system .

So please proceed as I advised you .
