    ...for the past 2 weeks my left forearm/wrist has been killing me. I can't grip things, or rotate my wrist(without pain). The only workout I've done is leg workouts because I can't hold on to the weights, I thought giving it some rest would heal it, but I tried working out today and after about 3 exercises I couldn't ball my hand into a fist. :wtc:

    Could be tendonitis. You can try an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen (800mg) to see if it feels better in a day.

    I'll try some, but I have a feeling if I just keep working out with it it will just get worse. So taking pills to mask the pain may not be such a good idea. :hs:

    It won't mask it. It's an anti-inflammatory that will heal it. Stop working on your arm and ice it for 15 mins every few hours

    I've had the pain for 2 weeks, took two weeks off from weightlifting, except for leg day. Most of the pain is centered on the top of my forearm near the elbow. But what happens is after using it, the arm kind of goes numb(falling asleep feeling) from my elbow down and I can't use it.

    I posted to see if anyone else had this kind of problem before, and what their experience with it was.

    a regular doctor won't be able to help you, you need a PT who understands neurodynamics

    That doesn't sound like a wrist problem. Go see a dr
