    Upper/inner Forearm (around Brachioradialis) muscle pain

    Hey guys, I've been training for about 5 years, but as of recent I've started to encounter some pain in the upper forearm (around the brachioradialis muscle). Here's a link to where the muscle is:
    http://www.forearmstrength.com/forea...f-ps008006.jpg

    At first I thought it was tendinitis, but I've never heard of tendinitis targetting the inner part of your forearm, more so the elbow region etc.

    The pain is not there at rest, and in fact it only presents itself when I contract my forearm muscle right at the top of a bicep curl (ie. when the front of your palm is almost touching the front of your delt).

    The pain is sharp, same sort of pain as when you do a rotator (I've done mine a couple of times). Any idea what the hell this could be? I wish I had an MRI machine heh.

    I think I have the same thing....curls are fine for the bottom half. It really hurts when im kicking up the dumbells for incline presses. MRI was clean. Did ART did nothing for it. Did cortisone injection and 2 months off did nothing for it. Now im trying accupuncture and I dont think its working. No one is really sure but the DR. thinks its nerve entrapment somewhere it almost seems like the nerve is getting crushed on end range of the curl and causing ALOT of pain...it even radiates to the shoulder and forearm.

    Sounds the same, except mine is just annoying rather than a horrific pain. I don't think mine is nerve related, the pain is isolated to the part of the forearm which I explained above. If it was a nerve I'd probably feel it in other parts of my forearm.

    Well you've been around the weights to know that you should just plain and simply put ''give it 2 weeks to heal''.
    You probably know that but by the sound of things you have been overworking this synergist muscle much to frequently.
    If not better in 2 weeks come back and ask.

    I've got the same thing. I can ignore it for curls, but side laterals are murder.

    I took three weeks off where it seemed to heal, only for it to return on resumption.

    It's been five months now and a major pain in the arse.

    Any ideas????

    Does it hurt more at the bottom of the curl or the end of the curl and where does it hurt?

    I wasn't asking "whether I should take time off", I am curious to know exactly the injury is related to (nerve, tendon, muscle etc.). I know that time off is the main healer of all injuries (sometimes with the aid of medications to speed up recovery times ).

    Only at the top, I can partial rep curl >50kg with no problem (ie. come half way up), which is a complete waste of time, I'm just trying to give you an idea of where the pain is.

    My pain started about 2 inches down the forearm from where they take blood...now its kinda all over the place. My reasoning is that if it was muscle injury dont u think it should hurt throught the full rom of the curl? especially if you load the weight up. I can partial curl alot of weight with no pain either...Can you fully flex your bicep hard with no pain and the same amount of intensity?

    I can flex my bicep but I do feel it niggle when my palm is closer to my shoulder (ie. a double back bi pose).. I suspect its a ligament strain or something..

    if its a ligament strain, pretty much nothing will help it but rest. When I did my rotators a few years ago I saw doctors, tried anti-inflams, heating gels, stretching and absolutely nothing healed them but total rest.

    Ligaments are a real pain in the arse to recover when you damage them.

    Any one of those heh, but I suspect it's the annular ligament which has been slightly damaged.

    Had another doc look at it today and it seemed like he really knew his stuff...he said it was bursitis...makes sense it gets squeezed then causes pain.

    Same problem here. I think it's my left brach. Might have over-exerted myself on some t-bar rows. It's been bothering me for over a week now. Same thing happened with my right arm a number of months back. I think it took over a month to fully heal. Hoping the left will heal sooner. But I am getting the same pain, when kicking db's up to do incline or military press. Uprows are too painful I learned today. A little pain when doing curls, but manageable. Anyways, hope everyone is healed by now...

    It looks like I'm not alone with this terrible injury. I've been dealing with chronic pain in my arms for four years now (I'm only 25, man!) and I'm almost certain it's related to my brachioradiali (can I pluralize that word?). The pain goes pretty deep, too. The only thing that gets rid of said pain is if I do literally no lifting of any sort that would require ANY flexion of the biceps. I'll go four months or so without lifting a finger, then slowly ease back into training, but after a month or two, the pain comes right back and snowballs over a couple days until I can't even lift a cup of water to my mouth without feeling it.

    What in the flying fats do I need to do, broskies? Lock myself away for a year and do absolutely no sports, lifting, motion, activities that would aggravate it? It's so frustrating, I'm seriously to the point where I'm thinking it would just be easier to accept that my arms are irrevocably busted and consign myself to a lifetime of gluttony and worthlessness (picture Jabba the Hutt). Do you guys have any advice?

    Thanks.

    It could be a lot of things, a little more detail on where it is might help.

    A way to help rule-out tendonitis is to perform an isometric contraction of the specific muscle. From the sounds of it, it's one of your wrist extensors. Have your elbow straight, make a fist, and extend your wrist (bring your wrist towards your shoulder), with the other hand, apply some pressure while extending your wrist to your shoulder. If there's dull, achy pain, it may be a case of Tendonitis.

    Exclamation

    I realize this thread was started a while ago, but I've just started experiencing the same issue.

    - pain; localized, top / interior brachioradialis approx 2" in from elbow.
    - frequency; non resting, during flexion subjected to any kind of opposing force / resistance.
    - sensation; almost dull, but severe corked / bruised feeling. not sharp or burning.

    The injury was caused by repetitive strain;
    - continually holding my newborn in the same position.

    As she got heavier and my arm became more strained, i began feeling the pain.
    With increased use i now cannot do things like close the car door or pick things up.

    I feel my doctor has misdiagnosed the issue as tennis elbow;
    - in an unrelated injury i have experienced this.
    - it is in the wrong area and it is not the same sensation.

    Also reading above regarding nerve entrapment;
    - due to other unrelated injury i have undergone ulnar nerve release surgery.
    - i have experienced nerve entrapment, this is not nerve related.
    The guy with radiating pain throughout the arm may well have a nerve injury, i know i don't though.

    Thats about as much info as i can think to provide.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    NB; have not trained during the time since my daughter was born.
    No heavy lifting of any kind has contributed to my current condition.

    Don't hold your newborn in that position anymore. Additionally avoid any and all activities that cause pain.

    Brachioradialis injury

No one is really sure but the DR. thinks its nerve entrapment somewhere it almost seems like the nerve is getting crushed on end range of the curl and causing ALOT of pain...it even radiates to the shoulder and forearm.

    What ended up happening with your injury? How long were you out.

    I seem to be in the same boat now. Rested for 2 weeks, nothing. Went to Doctor and got x-rays and cortisone pills, it has been two weeks and can still feel slight pain. I go back in the morning, but I feel it will be more trial and error. Any lift irritates it.

    Any suggestions that ended up curing you?

    I would try fricton massage and trigger point therapy. If that doesnt work, I recommend finding a great art therapist.

    I have been dealing with similar issues for about 6 months. I have taken up to 5 weeks off. Honestly, it did very little to help me. I ice, stretch and massage the area. But once I start lifting it comes right back. Curls hurt, row motions seem to really trigger it. Pain starts in the brachioradial on the right arm and seems to move into the elbow. The elbow pain, is more that it feels tight to bend. Pulls ups have become difficult too. I have been trying all I can to research this, even met with a neighbor who works as a Physical Therapist for one of the better Athletic Specialty Hospitals, he thought it was a distal bicep tendonitis. His stretches and exercises haven't helped at all. It is frustrating, as I can't seem to do half the weight I was able to do it really puts a damper on my workouts.
