    Strained Forearm

    I've had pain for some time now in my forearm (I believe) and I've taken a complete month off from physical activity as of late but I've babied it for quite a while now - about 3-4 months. Although the pain has gotten better, it still lingers and I'm definitely not healed from whatever this is.

We did the MRI, the tear was visible, I received two cortisone injections into my hip and followed a PT regimen until we decided it was not working and went ahead with the operation in October of 2010. I was 21 years old.
