Feeling pain in her upper arm (left)

Hi, my wife is pregnant in her 6th-7th week.
Today in the morning, she started feeling pain in her upper arm (left). Now shes claiming that the pain is still there and her upper arm is kind of swollen. Is there a change this has to do with the pregancy? Should we contact a doctor immediately or can it wait till next morning?

Hello. I don’t think it is related to the pregnancy. If the pain is accompanied by shortness of breath or dizziness or nausea, you should consult. Otherwise it is probably caused by overuse, a sprain or tendinitis. Applying cold compresses should help and should resolve by itself.. If problem persists you should consult. Regards
