Consult an ENT specialist

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
You may be having sore throat and blockage of eustuchian tube leading to middle ear infection or mastoiditis.
You should take steam inhalation, decongestant and antibiotics.
You should consult an ENT specialist for examination and treatment as required.
Pain killers can be taken as and when needed.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Brief Answer:
Require clinical examination for diagnosis

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Possibility of arm pain is less with that but in case of sore throat possibility of muscular pain can be there. Other possibility may be cervical radicular pain due to some root compression.
I suppose You are not having any joint swelling, are you?
Examination is necessary to get diagnosis. consult a doctor.
