This pain start 3 days ago. No accident, but when I move my arm it is stronger pain. When I do not move my arm it is no pain.

Brief Answer:
Most probably myalgia/strain or so

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your short feedback.
From the history you have provided this looks to be myalgia of pectoralis muscle or inflammation of the structures nearby.
Please take an anti-inflammatory medicine like Ibuprofen if it suits.
Put the affected forearm in a sling to keep it rested completely.
Consult your Doctor for clinical examination and investigations if any to get a proper diagnosis and further management.
