Pain in the right forearm on surface of bone, difficulty in lifting heavy things, pain is increasing, work excessively on laptop. Related?<br>

I have pain in my right forearm , below the elbow and a little above it as well. It is felt mostly on the surface of the bone area. (ie The area on top if I place my right palm down on a table. I do not recognize it as a typical sprain . It is very hard to describe it. It feels very strange when touched (like a cold is uncomfortable when under direct ventilation of the air-conditioner) Also I cannot lift anything heavier than a 2lb weight. This has been going on now since the last two months and is escalating with time. Can it be related to working on the computer alot. I use a laptop only.

Thanks for your query.
The pain described by you seems to me muscle pain that may be related to your work pattern. Keep yourself if possible from work for a week or two. I dont know whether any colour changes occur there or not. But in all probability it seems to me muscle pain. Though you must have an x-ray to exclude fracture. Give there hot compression, take analgesics and muscle relaxant like thiocholchicoside 8 mg thrice daily and give complete rest to your hand for 10 days and look for improvement. If no improvement is there then do a nerve conduction velocity testing for that upper limb to exclude neurological deficit. I think by all these you will be able to come to a diagnosis.
Thank you.
