worried

In May of 2012, I had a TIA, The vascular surgeon did a carotid endarterectomy to the left artery.  I've had pain in my left arm ever since.  The surgeon stated at my Post op visit, that I would always have pain due to the nature of the operation.   The pain was slight/bearable up until 3 days ago.  My grandson was visiting, he weights 26 lbs. I lifted him up a couple times.  Now the pain in my arm is at a point whereas I have great pain occasionally I'm in tears.  Did I pull a muscle or did I perhaps damage my artery.??  When I had the surgery, I had a stress test prior to.  The Heart Surgeon said my heart looked real good, no problems.  I'm scarring my husband...and myself.  It's Saturday night.....Do I go to ER ??

Hi!
The severe pain in the arm can be due to inflammation of the vein, a thrombus in the vein, a muscle pull, a nerve pull or even a referred pain from the heart. It is difficult to say what could be the cause. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. So, if ER is the way you can get immediate medical care then please go ahead.  Take care!
