hi my name is George McKenzie and I'm not a doctor but I used to host a syndicated medical cable TV show and also a health-related talk show on radio now I recently started having some severe pain in my upper arm and shoulder area and I played minor league baseball a long time ago a long time ago so I thought all that baseball throwing it finally caught up with me

I went to see a specialist here in New York and it found out that there are a lot of reasons for people of any age to have arm pain and my baseball career may have actually had nothing to do with it at all so I've done some research using these resources and a number of others to create this video to help other people like me who may be experiencing arm pain and are

trying to figure out why it's happening the causes of arm pain sometimes include problems that don't actually originate in one of your arms for instance a pulled muscle tendonitis bursitis arthritis or a repetitive stress injury and even though you may feel the pain in your arm the cause of the pain may actually come from somewhere else like your neck or your chest in fact arm pain and chest pain are often signs of a heart

problem therefore arm pain should always be taken seriously until you know exactly what's causing it often arm pain that's not caused by a heart problem or a fracture or nerve damage will respond well to self treatment once your doctor has made a diagnosis among the most common arm pain causes are a brachial plexus injury the brachial plexus is a network of nerves stretching from the spine all the way to the hand pain results if

these nerves are injured or damaged broken bones these of course are often the result of accidents Falls or athletic competition and then there are muscle strains and joint sprains these are fairly common and well known among the other more common causes of arm pain are repetitive stress injuries these often result in the following conditions carpal tunnel syndrome which is a painful condition resulting from compression of an important nerve in the wrist intersection syndrome this

is a painful condition of the forearm and wrist which affects people who do repeated wrist actions tendonitis this is inflammation or irritation of the tendons which are thick fibrous cords that attach bone to muscle bursitis a condition that results from an inflow of the bursa the fluid-filled sacs that helped tendons and bone move smoothly can vex disease which is a condition that often occurs after an injury featuring stiffness pain and swelling post ther Petach neuralgia

this is a complication of shingles and it features pain that continues after lesions or rashes heal thoracic outlet syndrome this condition results from compression of nerves and or blood vessels due to an inadequate passageway through an area between the base of the neck and the armpit this area is known as the thoracic outlet diagnosis of arm pain causes once again most arm pain doesn't present an emergency but you should take quick action even by

going to an emergency room in the following circumstances sudden arm and shoulder pain occurs accompanied by a feeling of discomfort pressure or squeezing your chest a heart attack may be in progress similarly you should get help quickly if you feel pain in your arm shoulder or back during or following exercise or exertion which goes away when you rest get medical attention fast when you experience sudden severe pain that may have been caused by an

injury especially if you heard a cracking or snapping sound at the time notice sudden extensive swelling in your arm or have trouble moving or turning your arm see a doctor if your arm pain continues for a week or so and doesn't seem to be getting any better you notice unusual redness or swelling or you have a brachial plexus injury that fails to improve in 3 to 4 weeks if you're experiencing arm pain your

best source of information of course is your doctor and you should only act on his or her advice but meanwhile here are some other resources you may find helpful just click on the links in the YouTube description section of this video to learn more about them
