Customer Question
I am having pain in...
I am having pain in my lower left bicep, particularly when I stretch it out. It also seems as if my veins are showing more than usual. This has been going on since this morning. I don’t know if I should be worried or not. I’m 27 yrs old. Is this something I should get checked out?

Any other medical illness?

Which antibiotic are you taking?

Thanks.

I do lift sometimes but I haven’t lifted in about 4-5 days now & my arm seemed to be fine yesterday. It is possible that I slept on it but I am taking Amoxicillin twice a day. I got some type of bump on my leg & I believe it’s a bacterial infection, it happened after I sat in the sauna at the gym. Do you think the antibiotic is causing the tenderness?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The lower bicep is tender, it’s not really stiff or weak but I notice it more when I stretch out my arm
Neurologist: Onlinedoc, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, possible differential diagnoses may include a Mild case of tendonitis.

It is not associated with Amoxicillin.

I would advise you to try some self-care remedies which you can try.

Do gentle massage with topical diclofenac sodium ointment and apply cool compresses.

And take OTC Advil.

Avoid any vigorous physical activity and lifting weights for few days.

You should cover it with an ace bandage.

Watch for symptoms like increasing pain, swelling, redness at the affected site for infection.

If your symptoms will not show any improvement then see your doctor for a clinical exam.
