Pain in the arm and shoulder after falling on ice. Not able to move the wrist. Why?

I fell on the ice. Right on my elbow. It has been a month now. I can't lift my arm because of the pain in my shoulder. I also have swelling below my shoulder and pain in two spots between my shoulder and elbow. My wrist also is painful when I move it. How can a blow to the elbow cause my whole arm to hurt? And what could be wrong

Thanks for writing to us.
The persistent pain even after a month of the injury could be due to a bone injury in the area or a bone bruise. You need to get an X-ray of the area done for proper diagnosis. Till then use a broad arm sling for relief.
