Left arm pain could be due to compression of nerves or muscles around the back of neck. If that is the cause, it is very well treated by a physiotherapist. It may possibly not even require medication or surgery.

But the sooner you see a physiotherapist the better it will be.

Hello there..... I went through your query..... Arm pain can be caused by a wide variety of problems, ranging from joint injuries to compressed nerves. Depending on the cause, arm pain is treated accordingly..... In many cases, arm pain actually originates from a problem in your neck or upper spine. .. Consult orthopedician for further evaluation and treatment.....
