    Forearm Pain

    Whenever I do ez-bar or barbell curls...I get serious pain in my right forearm. But, it only hurts when I have to put down the bar and let go. I always have to let go very slowly and its painful. Its my inner forearm with palm facing up. It also hurts when I press on it. Is it muscle pain? Bone related?

    This has happened to me a couple times. Most recently I got a little tired of it (last time it happened it took a couple weeks away from the gym for it to start to recede) and talked to a Navy doc about it. He said it just has to do with the muscles in your arm growing without the rest of you growing (i'm a little fuzzy about what he was saying). Basically what he was saying is that it's normal for it to happen to some people. It'll go away. Mine has started to go away recently, so i'm thinking he is right. I would go get it checked out anyhow, but if you have what I have, it's not injury material.

    Guess you've stretched a tendon in your forearm. They do a lot of work when doing curls. It seems a bit odd that it's when you let go but then I suppose that's when supinated ligaments get stretched to max. They take longer to recover than muscles but should be okay. You'll have to watch you don't aggravate it for a while. Perhaps a bit of gentle massage & watch it doesn't stiffen up & shorten.

    Ooops! Mixing up ligaments & tendons! Ligaments attach bone to bone not bone to muscle

    I have the same exact problem using the same exact exercies. My doctor did say it was a muscle strain. The thing is I took a month off from lifting because of my arm and am lifting again and I still have the same pain. I would like to know how to treat this also.

    I had the same problem. It was bothering me so I took a while off from curling.. (like a month and a half) when I started curling again the pain came right back... It got real bad, and I just kept curling anyway, and eventualy it didn't bother me anymore. I did this because I heard that is how to deal with the problem, and it worked.

    To describe the pain. I thought I had a sports fracture or something. when I pressed on the bone where the pain was it hurt.

    keep curling NO.. ive had the problem for 5 years, thinking/hoping it would go away, it doesn't... at least never has for me.
    I just isolated it down to the fact that it only hurts me on bar curls, don't feel it at all with dumbells, i dont understand it but i dont care i just dropped bar curls from my workout and i never have any problems.

    I get the same pain, to me it feels more like its my bone in my arm getting ready to break, not a muscle pain.

    The only time I don't get it is if I do hammer curls or us a reverse grip on the e-z bar with my palms facing down.

    It is always a good idea to see the doc... you never know.. It sounds exactly like what I had, but that is not to say it is...

    one thing I remeber that aggrevated it was if made a fist put my arm in the position like I would to flex my bicep, and then rotated my wrist.

    Go see your doc though... especialy if you have insurance...

    I had this happened to me last year. I talked to several hand therapists ( I work with them ) and I don't remember the explanation they gave me but I do remember I stopped doing preacher curls and concentration curls and stopped sleeping with my arms over my head. ( I used to sleep on my stomach which is bad for you apparently ) and it remedied the solution. I don't know what your training age is but if I was you. I'd stay away from preachers as much as possible, only throw them in every now and again, and use compound pulling exercises for biceps for awhile. After about 45 days if you want to start curling again try to make sure you keep your wrists in a neutral position and avoid flexion or extension of the wrists. If you feel pain take another 45 days off and try again. Also avoid bringing your elbows forward while curling, trying doing wall curls. When your elbows move forward 2 tendons are activated and if you keep your elbows back so that your upper arms are perpendicular to the ground only 1 will be used. ( I'm pretty sure on this info but can't be 100% )

    This is why it's recommended you have a low keyboard and mouse tray, so that your elbows can stay close to your side. Your problem may even be traced to excessive hand usage such as surfing/gaming, sewing, ect. I hope this helps and if you don't feel comfortable with what I said go see a hand therapist most insurance agencies will help and the fees aren't very high depending on your deductible, but I am around them every day and am pretty confident with the info I gave you.

    P.S. Hand therapists specialize in rehabilitating all injuries from the elbow to the finger tips despite their name.

    I had a similar pain that I would get when I did any curls. I went to the doc and he said it was a little tendonitis. It still comes and goes, but he basically told me to adjust my grip or do different lifts so that it feels ok. You don't want to inflame the tendon any more than it already is.

    Question

    I've been dealing with this exact same pain since January. Initially I thought I just strained the tendon rock climbing but then after taking a few weeks off I realized that it wasn't going away. Get's worse every time I do anything that requires me to pronate: Throwing a baseball or football, Tennis, Strait bar curls, Dumbbell curls, Pull ups. It's really been a major issue for me and nothing seems to help. It's gotten to the point now where just gripping anything, pushing up to get out of the car or even just leaning my arm against something is quite painful. First it started just in my right arm but now it is in both. It is really weird how it hurts the worst when pressure is relieved. While doing the lift I'm fine for the most part until I have to put down the weight. Even if a spotter lifts it off of me they have to do it slowly or the tendon just suddenly tightens up and hurts like hell. I've found that if I slowly let go of the bar one finger at a time starting with my pinky and working my way over it doesn't hurt nearly as bad. If anyone has any suggestions please share, I think I'm about to have to quite my baseball team because throwing the ball aggravates it more than anything else. Is this just a strained tendon or is it something more serious? I've tried resting it, and I've tried working through it, both rendered the same results thus far.

    I have advice.. go to a doctor man... I can't believe you have so much pain, and have still not gone... You seem to have a pretty bad case of whatever it is..

    I hvae had the same pain for years. It happens on curls and when I used to breakdance it would happen as well. I would press agianst the palm side up area of my foremarm and it feels like the bone hurts. It really only starts to hurt now by my last set of preacher curls. Weird.
    One day at a time...

    Thumbs up its not tendons its the muscle

    ok guys...i went to the physio last week and he said it was the facia around the muscle running down the ulna. he said it was restricting the pump of it while you are using that particular muscle sowhat you is massage it every second you get and put alot of pressure on it. then stretch it and when your at the gym stretch it between every set and trust me it will be so good you wont feel a thing

    I was going to post this the other day.. mine has flared up, and I started rubbing the spot where it was hurting real hard before, and after the set, and it helped a lot.. I will try messaging it several times a day, and see if that helps...

    huge difference already.. I did curls today, and before, between sets, and after I rubbed the spot on my forearm that hurt real hard.. it hurt while I was doing it, but it reduced the pain almost to nothing...

    for the next week I am going to message the spot as often as possible.. I expect great results based on what I have already experienced.

    My workout gloves have wrist straps built it, and I thought they were helping me, but once I stopped using the wrist strap part I noticed the pain was not as intense so I think the wrist wrap, atleast im my case was making it worse.
