Customer Question

I am male, age 54, 7 year post-TBI (occluded strokes in Left occipital, Lacunar, and Cerebellum). I just had my annual cardiac eval and am doing great (EF -73). My reason for inquiry is that for the last 6 months I have had a growing pain in my left bicep, at the lower end, yet above the tendon that attaches at the elbow. It is present at rest and activity. It is worse in the morning, yet present all day. I am just beginning to identify some associated weakness. I am quite active and its onset is not related to any injury. I recently mentioned it to my GP and Cardiologist, both of whom dismissed it. Is this something I should pursue further or just let it continue?

Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
The pain does not sound to be anything serious like referred cardiac pain.
It can be musculoskeletal cause.
A nerve impingement is also possible.
I feel you can consider taking an evaluation by an orthopedic.

He may advise tests like X ray / scan if he feels necessary after examination.

I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
