Of course recent trauma could cause it. It could be a slipped disc that is protruding and pinching a nerve. If it is that your arm that is on the side of the damage will seem numb and will have pains that shoot down through it. You should to to the doctor and get an MRI and x-rays soon.

This can result from a lot of different things. Lack of blood flow to an nerve or nerve cluster or a neurological disease could be the culprits. The most likely cause, however, is trauma.
