Harriet,

You need to go see either a neurologist or an orthopaedic spesensoredt. If you have pain going into your arms, then it is likely that you have an intervertebral disk injury (a ruptured or herniated disk in your neck). It is likely that the disk that is ruptured will be between your fifth cervical vertebra and your seventh cervical vertebra. Surgery isn't absolutely needed. Steroid injections often clear up the pain almost completely. Also, there is a possibility that it is simply a muscle strain or soft tissue injury that just happens to be pinching a nerve going into your arm.
