I hope this is the right place for this kind of question... (BTW I intend on staying 100% natural.)
Okay so I injured myself 2 years ago doing 95lb dumbbell incline presses, my left elbow just gave way, it started rotation outward and something clicked. Now my elbow clicks every time I straighten it completely. If I work out light it warms up and I feel no pain until an hour or two after the exercise. Basically anything from a 40lb dumbbell curl to a pushup ends up causing me a lot of pain sooner or later.
4 months ago I went to a Orthopedic Doctor, got an X-Ray/Cat-Scan couldn't find anything wrong except for some minor fluid. He gave me a cortisone shot that did absolutely nothing for me.
So that is my situation, I am hoping some vets out there have some good advice for me, Bodybuilding is a huge part of my life... I started in my early 20's, I am 28 now and have lost 20lbs of muscle.
Do I work through the pain until I require surgery and get it fixed?
Or do I lay off completely for 6months to a year and just concentrate on legs?
Oh and I apologize in advance if there is a better thread for this topic.
