    I used to do all kinds of bicep curls at home and never had problems. Then once I got to college, I started getting bad wrist pain when I do any kind of curls for my biceps. During the set it will hurt a little, but I can deal with it, but once i put the bar or dumbbells down, I get intense, long lasting shooting pain half way down my forearm starting at my wirst, sometimes it goes into my hands and my thumb. It happens on both arms.

    I took a few days off and it felt good, but if I open a door or do something requiring wrist strength, it will come back and hurt like a mofo, so much where its hard to concrentrate for like 5-10 minutes.

    Just a few minutes ago it barely hit it against the wall, and now its throbbing pain going into my hand and hurts like a mofo. Anyone have any idea what this is? My grip is exactly the same as it was before college. I didn't have any injuries between working out at home and at college.

    you feel it during the db curls because it's already aggravated from barbell curls

    Mix in some wrist rollers with NOT HEAVY weight.

    Now it stopped in my right wrist but gets really bad in my left. It starts out right away even on lighter weight. Sometimes it hurts to do the most basic things like turn a door knob, etc. I tried starting out on dumbbells and tried starting on barbell on light weight and still have the pain.

    Might be tendonitis. See a doctor and get some anti-inflammatories.

    Or just take Alleve.

    Or do some LIGHT weight wrist curls/wrist rollers to rehab it.

    OR rest that shit.....
