What causes pain in left lower biceps and forearm?

I've had pain in my left lower bicep and the adjoining area of my forearm for almost a year. It feels like muscle strain or non-recovery from a workout, hurts most when lifting, but doesn't really depend on the amount of load--very small weights also cause pain, even sometimes flexing with no load. I treated it as a muscle strain for a couple months but it hasn't helped. I'm male, 51, in good physical condition.

Hello,

It looks from your details that most probably you may be suffering from early arthritis of elbow.You should do following to have relief in this-

-Take a mild analgesic off & on like advil for relief from pain.
-Apply a local analgesic ointment & do warm water fomentation with water bag over the elbow.
-Take some joint supplements like collagen supplements.

If this all does not resolve your problem then you may consult to your doctor and get yourself investigated including x ray and blood investigation like CBC,B.SUGAR,THYROID FUNCTIONS,SERUM URIC ACID,etc.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Mukesh Tiwari
