In brief: Radial artery pain

on occasion the radial artery is injured causing forearm discomfort.
, Typically this responds to simple over the counter analgesics, initially ice packs for 48 hours then warm pads along with elevation. If severe or persistent beyond one week and then please see the treating physician for reevaluation
