View Full Version : Finger Contraction -- Ouch!?!?!

Has anyone every had a forearm cramp after lifting that caused one or all of their fingers to contract? Never had or heard of this before until it happened to me tonight. Very scary feeling.

Post-workout, just sat in the car getting ready to start it. Underside of forearm starts to feel cramped and tight. Thumb on same hand immediately contracted violently inward against the palm of my hand. I'm not sure what my other fingers did but the whole hand was definitely locked up - everything was rigid and I couldn't move it. I used my left hand and pulled my thumb back out and it snapped back against my palm again. Pulled the thumb back out one more time and my hand began to relax. Hasn't happened since.

I'm not sure if there was pain there because it was such a freaky feeling I was just shocked that it was happening.

I feel like I am definitely hydrated. Anyone ever had anything like this happen before?
