The pain in the arm seems to be related to the over the use of the muscle.

I suggest using anti-inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen.

I also suggest using anti-inflammatory cream for local application such as Voltaren cream.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
