After mowing the grass about four days ago my forearm down to my hand between the thumb and index finger is very tender. I can use and flex my muscles in my forearm but if I rub, squeeze or stretch the pain shoots through my arm. It's like a stretching and burning feeling. If I just extend my arm I can feel a very light tense feeling. If anyone knows what it is it would be appreciated. Thanks.
It sounds like it could be tendonitis or carpal tunnel. I have it in my right arm and can even get a cyst on my wrist right by my thumb when it gets really bad. Try a arm brace or wrap your wrist and take ibuprofen to help with swelling and give your arm a couple of days rest. It should lessen up in a couple of days if it is. If it gets worse go to the doctor and have it checked. Best wishes.
