    I'm not sure whats causing it, so i figured i'd ask if anyone else on here has had a similar pain....... it feels like its in my ulna, the actual bone, not the muscle. i took 4 days off because it was starting to affect my lifts, but it doesnt seem to have gone away at all....

    any insight on this or anything i could do would be great

    It happens to me a lot. I've found that if I change my lifting style to "squeexing" the weight rather than holding the weight, I have far less problems.

    yeah, i find that the less lazy i hold the weight the better it feels. i use to think that i should conserve energy by holding the weight with the minimum amount of energy with out affecting form and staying safe, but i've found that it's better to basically put you're whole body into every lift (i don't mean use every single muscle in your body to move the weight but you're whole body should be in control and tight).

    i guess i'll have to try that... but its not a constant thing, i've been lifting for about 8 months and it only started last week. it just came out of the blue, so i decided to take a few extra days off to see if it'd go away, but it didnt.

    i had a similar problem, i had a pain that was so intense i could barely even move my arms and drive afterward. i initially thought a nerve might have been pinched like gnp said, but after i saw 2 doctors they just said i over-strained it and to take some time off. i took a week off, went back, still didnt help. took 2 weeks off after and now im back in the gym and it's not hurting anymore. i think you just need some time off, as torturing as it is.

    I used to get it every oct->dec, I always just assumed it was the stress of the weight i was curling on my bones. During oct->dec is the start of hockey season, so also the stress i put on my forearm bones when shooting;therefore I never worried about it too much, although it did hurt like a bitch.

    Try not to squueze the bar so much. Watch your form. Kinda keep your wrists back, not putting strain on them. I dont really know how to describe it. Only use your hands/wrists as the "rack" for the bar, do not strain them when you lift. I used to have that problem too and it sucked. Someone else will probably be able to explain it a little better. Just dont grip the bar so tight.

    Well I don't know about you but I have tendonitis in my left elbow. It hurts to just lift 20lbs. I think I need some gear or something. These injuries suck.
