What are the causes...

What are the causes of aching type pain in my right arm

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No swelling and nothing triggers it, it just happens for the last few days

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have had two hip replacements, and a laminectomy and infusion surgery on my back. My heart has checked out ok recently I had two ekg’s by my primary doctor and cardiologist and they both said it was fine along with my blood tests.

This appears most likely to be a result of a pinched nerve in the spine.

Disc prolapse, or vertebral degeneration in the region of cervical spine can put extra abnormal pressure over the nerves as they exit the spine, and this can give you aching, burning, numbness, tingling (any one of them).

Given the history of spine issues before, I think you need an MRI of the cervical spine to diagnose this with certainty.

Meanwhile for control of pain, you can use Tylenol or Motrin for the time being.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
