Upper Right arm Pain

I have been having pain in my right arm between the elbow and the shoulder for a few weeks now. It's an annoying dull aching pain. I'm 16 and my mom who is 44 is having the same problem. It keeps us both up at night. She got an x-ray, but they couldn't see anything. Does anyone know what this pain might be?

Do you do some sport or activity together, like tennis?  Did she see an orthopedist?  An orthopedist is the best one to determine if it is tendinitis or something like that.

We are not involved in any sports. But the doctor refered her to an orthopedic doctor and she will be seeing them Tuesday. She doesn't want to take me to the doctor yet due to expensive copays, but I thought someone might be able to help on here. We just don't understand why we both have it. Hers travels up and down here arm. Mine is in the same place and keeps me up all night.

Is there any pain any other part of your body ?

No just the mid arm between shoulder and elbow
