    Unexplained muscle pain

    I'm a healthy 50-something with nary a health problem all my life, but about one month ago my right elbow became sore, as if I had bruised the bone.  The muscle in the forearm was sore as well, as if I had done some heavy lifting the day prior.  I didn't pay it much attention. 

    Now, a month later, none of the symptoms have ceased.  And a couple other muscles are now exhibiting the same "soreness," even though I did nothing to aggravate them.  The soreness in the right forearm is enough that lifting even a small weight if painful.  Can anyone provide a preliminary diagnosis before I see my internist?  Thanks.

    there r so many things. I have had this problem for yrs. drs. & meds for yrs. I do research a lot on different web sights. Iusually wait a few weeks or more depending on the pain to see if it gets better, stays the same or gets worse. then talk to dr. Ibelieve in preventive medicine. I will be 61 in Jan. sorry to say, as u get older, different things will come & go as we age. some stay. keep a positve mental attitude & work thru it. I pray u just have a strain, etc & it will go away soon.
