Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Does the pain radiate from your shoulder to the upper arm?
In that case, biceps tendinopathy is likely.
Steroid injection and physical therapy should be helpful over 6 to 8 weeks.
Rotator cuff tear is another possibility.
MRI scan of the shoulder will help to assess the severity of damage and plan surgical repair.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable and authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-mysticdoc/
Ok that is reassuring --not a serious damage.
This is due to the forearm tendon inflammation. or epicondylitis.
Steroid injection at the tendon attachment to the forearm bone often helps with faster recovery.
Ibuprofen can be taken 600 mg 3 times daily with food to help with pain and healing meanwhile.
Physical therapy also will help.
