Pain in the elbow radiating to the fingers. Why am I having random pains?

My arm hurts pretty bad from the elbow and radiates down to my fingers. I have no explanation for this pain, meaning, I have not done anything physical with it besides cooking last night and typing today. This happens quite frequently in my arms and sometimes throughout my body in different areas, mainly my legs, from the knees down. Why am I having these random pains? It is throbbing pain.

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Your symptoms of pain in the arm, elbow and radiating down into fingers suggests a neuropathic pain possibly due to a pinched nerve in the cervical spine.

An MRI scan of the cervical spine is necessary to establish the diagnosis.

Your random pains in the legs could be due to Dehydration, Vitamin or mineral deficiencies (Calcium , potassium deficiency), Stress, Overuse etc. A detailed evaluation is necessary to establish the exact cause.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
