Bicep cramping?

I have recently joined the gym and started using some of the arm machines. I am used to the soreness associated with leg muscles and abs as I have worked them out many times in the past. My arms have not had so much attention. I did some bicep curls on a machine not free weights, and some tricep stuff as well as upper back and shoulders. Now I did this day before yesterday. Yesterday my triceps were sore and as the day went on my shoulder started to get so stiff I couldn’t really lift it. Then this morning my shoulder was fine but now my biceps are so sore that they hurt when my arms are in any sort of position, whether I’m using them or not. Is this normal for being sore on the upper body? Persistant pain? Because lower body I notice only really hurts when you are using the muscle or stretching. I did stretch after my exercises. My biceps hurt the most just above the elbow joint and seem swollen as well. Is there some common mistake people make on those machines I might not know?

    The second day is always the worst for pain after a hard workout. Take some potassium supplements for the cramping, and ease back a bit on the weight untill you are less sore, then increase gradually.
