I am experiencing pain in my right arm right above and below the elbow, though the elbow itself doesn't hurt. The pain progesses as the day goes on, and picking up the objects -- whether heavy or not -- hurts. Does anyone know what could be causing this and what I can do about it?
Hi there, Stacy -
I know this is a very old question, and I'm sorry it's taken this long for someone from our staff to answer it! Did you ever find out what was causing the issue with your arm? It sounds to me like some form of tendonitis in that arm, but I'm only a layperson and not a healthcare professional, and thus can only offer a "shot in the dark" guess at what could be causing the pain.
If you had a doctor look into it, what did he/she say was the cause, and what was the prescribed treatment? Perhaps you'd consider returning and telling us what you did to ease it. It might be really helpful to someone else in our community who is experiencing the same symptoms.
Here are some links to articles on our site that might be useful, in any case:

Could you please clarify your question? What exactly are you asking?
