  • strange pain - advice needed!

    hey guys,

    so i have noticed recently that have developed a strange pain when im doing barbell curls. whilst doing the exercise everything is fine but as soon as i go to put the bar down on the floor and begin to release my grip, i get a shooting pain right up the outside of my forearm, only on my right arm.

    its really strange - it doesnt feel like a muscular pain so what else could it be? i have looked around on the internet and not been able to find any reasonable answer.

        The area you forget to mention where are you feeling the pain?
        how long you are feeling this pain?

          Hey tommyho1,

          That sounds a little like tennis elbow inflammation, and a little like trigger points. I'm no doctor, but I have had excruciating elbow pain in the past - and here's what I found out about how to treat tennis elbow.

          Massaging trigger points is a simple and cheap way of seeing if the pain's tense-muscle related. And it helps me with a ton of my own muscle pain!

          If the page above doesn't help, you should try seeing a doctor. Especially if the pain has been getting worse for a long time. Getting hurt isn't any fun, but getting a chronic overuse injury (and recovering from it) is even less fun.

          I hope this helps,

            the pain is pretty much all the way from my wrist up to my elbow along the outer "side". it only lasts for about 5 seconds and it only happens when i put the bar down and release my grip.
