Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.You may have problem at the cervical spine.Nerves from the spine supply the both forearms.Any compression of the nerve at the spine due to the arthritis, herniated disc can cause bilateral symptoms.You should consider getting Xrays first of the cervical spine.MRI scan of the spine will be better.Physical therapy will be helpful.In resistant cases, epidural steroid injection is very effective.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable and authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:
