    For several months, I have had an unexplained discomfort in my left arm just above the bend. My Dr. has taken x-rays and ordered an MRI. Today I had a Vascular Ultrasound done and will get the results in a few days.

    It is not a constant discomfort but comes in the form of a tightening just as if I had a rubber band around my arm. Sometimes it feels like I have rubbed "icy hot" on it. It is mostly above the bend but sometimes above my elbow.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to what this might be?

    Could very well be nerve pain. I have carpel tunnel in my right arm. For me it goes from my hand all the way up to my shoulder. My hand gets numb/tinlgy and weak. Sometimes the nerve hurts so bad and burns...I have nerve damage so, I think your pain may be the same type of thing. Hope you get answers soon.
