    so i'm not exactly sure what happened but my left pointer finger hurts when raise upward. pain shoots up the inside of my forearm to my elbow then to the attachment point of the bicep near the elbow. I've got an ice pack getting cold, compression glove and elbow wrap seem to be helping, any other ideas? besides rubbing cheetah blood on it?

    i think i made it flame up when i picked up a fairly heavy dumbell with my arm fully extended, feels like it pulled my elbow temp out of socket or something.

    so what did you do for your tendonitits?

    I used one of those compression bands that goes on your forearm just short of your elbow(Football players use them a lot) and try to not stress it for a couple weeks.

    Down the pinky side of your forearm? If so, could be tendonitis. Down the pointer finger side it could be carpal tunnel. More than likely you are describing tendonitis though.

    Shitty thing about tendonitis is that you really just have to give it some time off. Keep a brace or compression band on your elbow a few hours a day and just take it easy. At least on the injured arm.

    good news/bad news
    its not tendonitis
    bad news, its nerve damage. hooray! caused either by to much consistent pressure on the palms of my hand or a dislocation of my elbow, possibly both.
    hopefully it will heal quickly.... until then i'm down to two lift days a week. legs and i guess i acn do a full day of abs. all the rest of my workouts are being replaced with interval training on the elliptical for roughly 40 minutes. just when my damn arms hit 16" too.

    I was just going to say ulnar nerve inflammation. Been dealing with it ever since an elbow tweak during a snatch, a few weeks ago. Finally starting to dissipate...

    ulnar nerve wouldn't affect the pointer finger

    its just like a strange pins and needle feeling from inner side of my pointer finger to my elbow. I think i first felt it when doing shrugs with a larger weight than usual. i have tendonitis in my right arm and its definatly not that.
    so what did you do to expediate the healing process on your nerve inflammation?

    The ulnar nerve originates from the brachial plexus and travels down arm. The nerve is commonly injured at the elbow because of elbow fracture or dislocation. The ulnar nerve is near the surface of the body where it crosses the elbow, so prolonged pressure on the elbow or entrapment of the nerve may cause damage. Damage to the ulnar nerve may involve impaired movement or sensation in the wrist and hand.

    :dunno:

    its the best explanation i could come up with, but i'm still kinda in the dark on teh whole thing. just crossing my fingers it will go away soon.
