Why do my arm muscles and arm sockets ache?


Posted by Suzqnu

Why do my arm muscles and arm sockets ache?  The pain is mostly in my upper arms.  The aching seems less during the day.  It is worse at night.  I lose 80% of my arm strength while sleeping.  I can barely pull my covers up if I wake up at night.  I barely have any strength when I first wake up but it gets better soon after.  This just started at the end of November.  I didn't have this problem at all as I was doing a basement renovation late summer early fall.  I had no problem tearing down drywall and ripping up floors.  I don't think the two have anything to do with each other because I wasn't feeling any pain while renovating for 3 months.  The pain started well over a month after finishing the construction work.  I am a 51 year old female.  I have been taking naproxen sodium for possible inflamation during the day and night but stopped a few weeks ago because it didn't seem to help.
