Brief Answer:
Can be due to electrolyte imbalance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Repeated pain in the arms and muscles after doing minor daily chores can be due to dehydration, muscle fatigue, decreased vitamin D3 levels or electrolyte abnormalities.
You need to drink sufficient fluids and also see that your intake of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium ) is sufficient. You can drink Oralyte for this.
Other factors are
Poor fitness levels and lack of regular exercises
Poor nutrition and obesity
Some times referred pain from bulging discs in the neck is the reason.
In case the pain is persistent then do consult an orthopedician for few blood tests and detailed examination.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

should I be concerned that it has been happening for over 2 months? would Gatorade be good too drink? and would a mild excercise regimen be ok to do considering how weak they get after using them?
