I was shoveling snow and breaking ice with a dirt shovel two days ago. Before I was finished I noticed a pain in my right forearm about a third of the way from my elbow, on the inner side (it felt like the muscle attatched to my middle finger). I kept shoveling, as I rock climb and have noticed similar pains like this, and they've gone away before. However, later that day it continued to hurt to the point where I couldn't do much with my right hand. The next day the pain had moved up to the front third (still on the inside) of my forearm and I noticed a little swelling. It feels even more swollen today and I'm afraid it will effect my work as I do a great deal with my hands for remodelling.
