Welcome and thank you for your question.

Your BP is quite high - this can put some pressure on the aneurysm.

Increase in size of the aneurysm from 3.5 to 3.6 is negligible - if your BP is kept under control, there should be no problem in this regard.

The pain in the arm is not related to the aneurysm. And since the stress test was normal, it is unlikely to be due to a heart problem.

But it is very likely that the pain is related to the spinal disc - it is possible that you have an inflammation of the root of the nerve at the spinal cord level and need to get this examined by your doctor.

I hope this helps.
