The inside of my right forearm is very sore to the touch.

Customer Question

the inside of my right forearm is very sore to the touch. From my wrist to above my elbow. It isn't in a joint or muscle, just a straight line below the skin is sensitive. It's beginning to swell and is so tender that my shirt sleeve irritates. This started 2 days ago and sees to be getting worse.
Thanks - Leslie

This can be blood clot related issue.

Blood clot can cause inflammation of the veins causing the pain.
