I'm in some serious pain right now, my arm from my shoulder to just above my elbow is just fucking hurting like a bitch. On top of that, my chest hurts, my jaw aches and it hurts when I breathe.

I'm going to see a doctor in the morning, of course, but for the time being, how can I relieve this pain in my arm?

I took two pills of acetaminophen and it worked for everything except the god damn arm.

Does it affect your legs or lower back? If no, it might be due to rheumatoid arthritis. You did right to take acetominophen. If RA is the case and the pain started just today, apply ice pack on affected area. It will reduce inflammation and pain. Don't if pain bothered you more than a week. You can try majezic, its NSAID, to relieve pain.

It only affects my arm, not lower back or legs. I'll try ice and see if that works. Thank you.

A hot water bottle always helps for me. Always. Keep the spot warm and don't expose to cold too.
Massage after hot water treatment.

As i already mentioned don't apply hot if the pain started newly(acutely) like a week or so. Instead use cold. But if the pain is chronic then use hot. In this case op seems to have acute pain, i guess cold is more compatible with physical therapy criteria.

Well I always use hot even if it started just now. And it always helped. Cold only makes it worse for me.
I use cold only to prevent a swelling. If you hit your head or sprain your ankle or similar.
