Customer Question
I am having this...

I am having this pain in my upper arm area and was wondering about what is the next best step

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

Worse, but no swelling yet it is almost in the entire biceps area

Nothing that I am aware of. I have had couple of knee procedures in the past, but nothing on the arms as such

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
