Hi there ~

I understand your concern. Neck, shoulder and arm pain may be related. If you have been lifting heavy weights I think that you might be spraining your joints and having muscle spasms that are affecting them as well. Overworking any part of the body might not be good for you. I hope this helps. Please visit with your doctor if things don't get better over time. Take care and have a lovely day!
