Hello,

The arm pain can probably be related to bursitis. I recommend using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms. I also suggest using cold compresses for local application. If the symptoms continued, she should probably use prescription painkillers.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
