    Forearm Splints!!!???

    I tended to get mild pain in my forearms after a bicep workout...

    Aftre last workout, the pain has become ridiculous. I worked my bi's 2 days ago, and I still have searing sharp pains in my forearms. I am unable to clench my fist tightly and my fingers are a bit tingly.

    I tried curling my wrists towards me during curls... didn't help. Also even more pain occurs when I do close grip curls. This has been a reoccuring minor nuisance... but now it is hurting my cycle.

    What can I do?? I dont even think I will be able to train tonight?!!?

    I only and I mean ONLY get what you are saying when I take Dbol . I can take 1000mgs of Test with 1000mgs of EQ with 100mgs of Tren ED. And nothing! But once I hit the Dbol! Forget it! Pain everywhere! Tendonitis you name it!

    hmm. the only thing i can recognize and relate to this is if i complete a workout where arm work is heavily involved, afterwards my fingers can kind of uncontrollably curl together into a fist shape. it is quite uncomfortable, but it's definetely related from the heavy lifting. Plenty of sleep eases this though

    take the pain. I had that to because I worked bis and never forearms so my bis became to strong for my forearms abilities.

    start workign forearms more and youll notice the pain go away

    I've had forearm splints for a while and I just do dumbell, concentration, and cable curls instead of the ez bar or straight bar, works for me.

    Happens to me too, b4 gear n all. Especially using big weights, 4 me it helps doing curls standing up and using diffrent grips. If I have been hitting biceps hard 4 a prolonged time I always get the pain. Not maybe the first one or two days... The bigger weightsI use the easier I get it..

    I had the same problem not on gear or anything else when it happened. But i would sit in class and they would hurt resting. I think i might of had stress fractures because the pain was very bad. It took me two months to heal to where it never came back again. You need to ease up on the weight, maybe get an xray if they are extremely painful to make sure you don't have any small stress fractures. But i think everyone here is hitting it right, REST REST REST. I always felt that the protein shakes eased the pain some for me, but overall i had to work around the forearms for about 2 months to let them heal. And when your feeling better don't go balls to the wall either cause it will come right back again. I'm not a doc but maybe bumping up your calcium intake will help heal them. Good Luck with it

    I had the same problem. When you are done doing your sets release your grip from the bar or dumbell very, very slowly. This will not make the problem go away but it will help alleviate the pain. This worked for me, hope it helps you work through it.

    the calcium uptake prolly wont help.... rest them!! Find ways to do biceps that u can feel no pain.. To me there are many ways I can do them unless the thing gets tot far i.e. I keep training them even while they hurt. Now I have learned to go easy on them and do alternative things right away when I get pains.. No problems anymore most of the time..

    voltaren anti inflammatory cream works a treat. Stops the enflamed swelling around the area.
