Shooting/stabbing pain in right arm

I didn't know where else to post this.
I'm 30 and tonight I've been having a shooting pain in my right arm. It kinda feels like its in the bone between my wrist and elbow. It's not constant. It just comes and goes but, it's really painful. I took some Advil for it but, that's not really working. I've had this pain before and sometimes I get it in my right wrist(it has been fractured twice years ago). I'm just wondering if it could be some sort of Arthritis or what's going on? How should I treat this? Heat? Ice? What?

Re: Shooting/stabbing pain in right arm

Your symptoms sound like your original injury years ago may be the cause and I am not sure heat or ice would help stabbing pains, and if it does, probably temporarily. It could be scar tissue or arthritis that has come on from your wrist. I would just get it checked out by a doc.
