What could be causing regular neck/shoulder/bicep pain and spasms?

I started having regular pain through my right shoulder down to my right elbow a few months ago. Today, I keep having muscle spasms in the same bicep. Too broke for a doc visit...anyone else experienced this?

So, a few months ago, I started getting regular pain on the right side of my neck, through my right shoulder, down my right bicep to the right elbow. I can't think of any specific event or injury that may have caused this. It's not the entire area every time...usually just one on any given day and moves to another the next day. I've started to think it's some sort of nerve damage because if I turn my head to the left, I get the same tingly pain that comes from hitting your funny bone. However, it's all up and down my bicep. I've been just dealing with it until I have the extra cash for a doctor's visit. Today (and this is new), my right bicep keeps going through periods of spasms. They aren't painful but rather annoying. As this is progressing, I'm started to get more and more worried as other symptoms crop up.
Hoping that someone else around here went through the same thing and may have either some suggestions or ideas on what may be the problem.
