I have pain in both my forearms, what would ease it?

That depends...: ...Entirely on the cause. It could be an injury, pain from chronic overuse, or something unusual. You and your doctor can figure out the cause, and that knowledge will help you figure out what to do about it. In the meantime, try a little Ibuprofen (motrin, advil, (ibuprofen) etc.).

Rest: You need to rest. When starting weightlifting, you need to start with light weights and slowly increase the weight. You may be suffering from a strain or compartment syndrome. If the forearm is swollen much larger than the other, and has any numbness, you should visit a physician for an examination immediately.

This most likely: Represents an overuse or strain phenomenon of the forearm ligaments. I suspect you are continuing to do activities -- weight lifting, work or hobbies involving repetitive motion, lots of handwriting, etc -- that perpetuate the strain. Placing the wrist and forearm in an immobilizing splint may help, as may NSAIDs/ibuprofen. However, after a year, I would advise seeing a bone and joint specialist.

See a rheumatologist: See a rheumatologist and have the problem evaluated. It is likely to be tendinitis but an evaluation should be able to determine the exact cause and provide treatment options.

I have a bad pain in both of my forearms. What could be the cause of the pain?

How is your neck?: Unlikely you hurt both your elbows, or used both your hands so much, you affected muscles in forearms, which leaves your neck as source of pain in both forearms. But, pinched nerves from neck don't typically skip arms (between shoulders and elbows) to only affect forearms. So, need more information.

27f don't smoke, exercise regularly...I've been having upper back pain along with pain in both of my forearms. Also a heart burn feeling after eating.

Chest pain: Sounds like you have back strain and esophageal reflux or peptic disease, try antacid for the heartburn or over the counter ranitidine. A massage may help the back pain but if you actually have an ulcer, it could manifest as back pain. Don't hesitate to go to your doc for an exam, it will help.

Is it bad to cut your forearms?

Is it bad to cut your forearms?

Yes: The biggest issue with self cutting is why are you doing it. The cutting itself can cause scarring, infection and blood loss. If you hit a major vein or artery you could cause serious harm. Most people who self cut are trying to feel something different than what's truly causing them pain. Trying to substitute one pain for another is not a healthy thing. Seek medical/psychiatric help immediately.

Is it ok to do a forearm workout everyday?

Is it ok to do a forearm workout everyday?

Reasonably: It is reasonably safe. If you start having an increase in pain, this may suggest you are over using it and more rest may be needed; but if you are reasonably comfortable each day after you work out, it is not likely you are causing any problems.
