In general, no. It would generally cause local pain in the upper arms. However, in many cases with muscle inflammation, it can involve many muscles in the body, not limited to the upper arms. So it may cause pain in other areas. Please tell us what condition you have.

Hi Terry, it may not transfer to other parts of your body. But as a systematic disease, it may involve different parts of muscles. Maybe they can present at different periods as different patterns. Therefore, you'd better go to see a rheumatologist for one disorder—myositis. You can take a blood test for autoantibodes of the myositis first.
