Brief Answer: can be due to osteoporosis or muscular pain Detailed Answer: Hi Mrs.Easterbrook , Thanks for your query.I had gone through your history. Pain in left arm can be due to Cervical spondylitis Muscular pain due to trauma Osteoporosis Angina It is less likely to be angina or heart pain as it is not associated with sweating or palpitations. So you need not be concerned. If you are very concerned, I would suggest that you get an ECG to put your fears to rest. I feel, the possibilities of the cervical spondylitis, muscle strains and osteoporosis to be the cause more than angina. Continue with your previous medicines and get evaluated for these diseases. This should benefit you as per opinion. Regards
