Last Saturday I had a shooting pain in the part of my arm not quite in the middle of the inside of it but near my elbow. I wasn't doing anything remarkable apart from taking a shower so I hadn't used it any differently to any other time. I thought no more of it and so continued to shower. It was only the following day that the area that hurt felt swollen.
I saw the doctor a few days later but because I'd gone to him about something else I didn't mention to him about the arm problems and I also thought they'd resolve. Because the problems are in my dominant hand I'm afraid to draw or write as I only have to hold a pen or pencil for a short time and my hand comes over tired as if the muscles don't want to work. I used to have really neat writing but lately it starts off neat and gets more scribbled. The skin around my elbow area has become sore but there's no redness or rash, just looks the same as it always has.
This Saturday (8th Sept) the muscle around my upper right arm started to feel very heavy as if I've been lifting weights. Again, I did nothing remarkable to provoke it, but the muscle is now throbbing, like an elastic band is around it and is a little wider than my left one.
When I saw the GP about problems with my leg (I had very bad leg pain a few days ago which has since gone) he said it couldn't be the hypoT/Hashi's as it would bring about exterior skin changes and usually happens very slowly. The problems with my arm have happened over the course of a week and I'm not sure if that's a slow progression or not.
