Upper Arm Pain

Has anyone suffered from sharp pains in their upper arm??

the pain comes and goes and I can feel exactly where it is sore, it’s in an almost straight line.

i would describe it as a spasm

if so any relief tips?

baclofen for spasms and cramp.

also magnesium helps - either supplements or oil as it can be absorbed through the skin.

good luck

Yes, I get this a lot. It shoots down my underarm, and sometimes goes up into my neck and jaw. I had my heart checked out because of this just to be on the safe side, but it’s definitely an MS spasm type thing according to my neurologist. It tends to come in sharp waves, and can be agony so you have my sympathy. I have found that swimming has helped me a lot generally. I cant swim far as I don’t have much strength, but I really enjoy moving about in the water and stretching my body, especially my arms. I’ve had much less pain since I started swimming about a year ago.
