What are the causes of soreness and pain in the left arm

Created On : February 24, 2015

I am having sore and some pain in my left arm (bicep area) for several weeks. I can't lift my arm more than 90 degrees and even that is painful. I don't know what I could have done but obviously something is wrong

The pain that you have is likely to be due to a muscle sprain or a muscle fibre tear due to an injury or exertion. Since the pain is persistent for several weeks it need to be investigated. MRI scan is the investigation of choice to detect any such soft tissue abnormalities. I suggest you to consult an orthopadician who can examine you, and order a MRI to know the exact cause and provide the proper treatment for it.
