Over the past 4 months I've had constant forearm tightness in both my arms. It all started when I came home from work one night, and I felt a burning ache and tightness in my arms. Since then the burning sensation has disappeared but the tightness has remained. I'm a student and I work part time as a checker at a grocery store which involves a lot of reptitive motion which must have triggered my condition. I've tried anti-inflammatories, rest, strengthening exercises, and over the past month I saw a chiropractor 3 times a week. He thinks that since I have a problem in both arms that it is nerve problem in my neck. However, despite working on my neck and arms for a month the tightness continues. This past week, he said that there was nothing more that he could do for me. So I've stopped seeing him. I'm at a loss of what to do. Should a see an orthopedist, massage therapist, or get a cortizone shot. I'm currently looking for another job that doesn't involve repetitive movements which hopefully give my arms some time to recover. The tightness is worst in my finger extensors. Any suggestions. Thanks
