    I hope someone in here has some experience that might help me out.
    I've been working on getting my push-up numbers up (in the military) and lately I've been getting a real sharp pain in the center/top of my hand while doing them. The only time I have any sort of pain is when I'm in the push-up position with weight on my hand.

    Anybody got any ideas? (Aside from "stop doing push-ups" :fawk:)

    No problem doing push-ups on my knuckles. Problem is that for "fitness tests" purposes I have to do them on my palms. I'm hoping that I just over trained and it'll go away if I quit abusing it.

    No problem man I thought I was imagining things or something. Seriously.

    I would tell the medical staff there, they want to keep soldiers in good condition... right?

    I don't like/trust military docs. I'm gonna wait and see if it goes away, if not I'll consult a civillian doc.

    tell me about it, imagine waking up in the middle of eye surgery and all you hear is the doctor go "ummm, he's awake" right after you're like aaaaaaaah. Freaking military anesthesiologist
