Re: Sharp left upper arm pain when moved
It could be shoulder impingement, that is, bursitis and/or tendonitis in the shoulder. I have this condition. Greatest pain when moving arm is the upper arm muscle about where it attaches to the shoulder and continues down toward the elbow. Arthritis is usually the cause or rotator cuff problem. The bursa in shoulder is inflammed causing swelling and does not allow sufficient room for the ligaments to move smoothly through the area.
My appointment to see the orthopedic doctor is 7 weeks away. However, I have been living with the condition for several months waiting for it to go away, but, that has not happened.
