    Turns out I have a bloodclot in my arm which has been causing me a shitload of pain and keeping me out of the gym for months. The first doctor said that it should go away on its own within a monther, so far it has only gotten worse. :wtc:

    I'm about to make an apt. with the local doctor round here to try and get some form of medication for it, since it is just killing me.

    Anybody ever delt with a similar situation?

    Drop dumbells on it until it unclots.

    I had clots in my legs after I got out of the hospital this summer. They are ridiculously painful. Couldn't even put my weight on my legs (had clots in both legs).


    I was put on blood thinners for like 4 months and they went away and haven't come back.

    They suck though so I feel your pain.

    Oh and I hear that higher doses of fish oil will thin the blood. Perhaps you should look into that.
