Has anyone ever experienced arm pain from shooting a wrist strap release aid. The pain runs from the outside of my pull wrist through my elbow and into the rear shoulder.

I had that exact pain! I went to a chiropractor and he adjusted me, it took about 4 visits for the pain to start going away.

Yes sir is muscle pain, I have what they call a licenced needle therapist, (not acupuncture). He is also a licensed chiropractor. What you have done is flared up your muscles (malware) and it could even be a muscle in between your shoulder blades. This may sound crazy but lay in floor with your palms turned up and have your wife take the hill of her foot and roll in on your arm with your palm up. When she finds the spot that makes your scream keep massaging, also do this on your shoulders and in between don’t get too wild. I have spinal stenosis was in very bad wreck in 2015, long story short I have a gifted c2 c3 c4 not bad enough to rush operation at 31 years old. Allot times we flare our muscles up by playing on our phones or computers and notice it when we go to shoot our bows and it’s muscle trouble most the time.

However if this doesn’t help go see a doctor.

Y’all are going to think I’m crazy but trust me I’ve been down this road, muscle get irritated inflamed and then pinch other muscles and sometimes nerves and it’s not disc or bone related just part of our body’s.

Thank you, I'll get an appointment
Compression of the ulnar and radius nerve through the carpal tunnel in your wrist. Ulnar nerve is inflamed, so there is less room in the carpal tunnel through the wrist. The wrist strap is squeezing your wrist, and this pushes down on the tunnel. Top of the tunnel is a tendon that runs left to right at the base of the palm. Neurologist (nerve specialist) can do a simple test (no equipment required). Then, if needed, he can do a needle EMG (test the nerve conduction velocity). When the NCV (nerve velocity) slows down due to compression somewhere along the nerve highway from your neck to your fingertips, nerve damage goes from temporary to permanent. When the nerves are squeezed somewhere along the nerve highway, between your neck and your fingers, then, your muscles in your hand start to shrink (atrophy). Grip strength can start to go away, permanently. I waited too long to see the neurologist. Waited years. By the time I saw the neurologist, he said Good News and Bad News. Needed double hand surgery. Nerve damage was borderline permanent. Good news, chief of Hand surgery is a friend of my wife.

Not muscle pain. Cervical radiculopathy. The wrist strap is compressing the wrist. Pain goes from the wrist to the elbow all the way up to the rear shoulder. You just lit up the entire ulnar nerve. Go see a physician who will give you a referral to an neurologist. Don't wait years like I did. Most physicians will recommend physical therapy, to see if that can calm down things. If symptoms persist, surgery may be required to permanently take care of things. I had double hand surgery and only lost 15% of my hand strength, cuz I waited sooooo long.
