Your sharp shooting painin the forerm may be due to Cervical spondylosis.Basically it is due to the vertebrae in your neck neck pressing on the spinal nerves coming out rom them to supply your arm.Firstly you should try sleeping without a pillow.You should also do exercises to strengthen your neck muscles.The pain if severe should be managed with T Etorocoxib 60mg once daily for a week.You should consult a physiotherapist to tell you about the neck exercises. you should get an ECG taken as sometimes heart disease can also present as arm pain(in this case highly unlikely but better to rule it out)
