    Diagnosing the cause really depends on a proper physical examination by a doctor and consideration of your medical history. It could be due to overuse or strain – you possibly strained one arm and then overused the other which eventually displayed the same symptoms while the original arm had a chance to heal. This of course is just one possibility. For swelling and pain to change sides like this (in such a short period and so suddenly) could be due to an insect bite or possibly even an autoimmune condition. You need to see a doctor.
