Pain in my forearm and recuperation.

I'm fairly new to climbing and I've recently started a routine of climbing three times a week.

Now, about a month and a half ago I believe I sprained a muscle in my forearm. Now whenever I do crimps I experience a extreme shooting pain down the center rof my forearm.

I've been trying to climb every other day to give the arm some time to rest, but it doesn't seem to be getting any better. I know I should give it some more time to heal, but my concern is I don't want to lose my momentum; I'm trying to develop my strength so I can do v6s and v7s.

My questions are:
1. Any suggestions to help my arm heal faster?
2. How consistent do I need to be to retain my strength?(If I stop rock climbing for a month will I lose my strength and be back at doing v2s and v3s?)
