Pain on right arm radiating to elbow. Had an anti inflammatory. How to cure?

I went bowling and two days later had significant radiating right arm pain. The hospital checked it out to rule out heart and gave me an anti inflammatory, which helped. But every time I sit up or stand I have a lot of pain at the back of the armpit and radiating down to the elbow. Ice packs help a little, but I can't be without pain unless I'm laying down

It is possible that you might have sufferred an injury during bowling which is causing your pain. It is good that the hospital ruled out any heart problems. Your pain seems to be due to a nerve involvement. You should consult your doctor who can examine you and carry out some investigations to check if this is true and necessary interventions can be taken. Meanwhile continuing with pain killers will help.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Injury to the muscle - from posture and/or strain - is most likely.
Irritation of the nerve root (arm pit is supplied by T-3) is another possibility

You should get examined by the doctor...X-rays of the spine may be necessary...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
