i am a 48 year old lifter. Started about a year and a half ago and love it. about 9 months ago i had a real bad cold and it weakened me. i went lifting with my trainer and over did it with curls. now i have unbelievable pain in my bicep and forearm . i mean red-hot pain when i lift and especially when i do a twisitng motion (like unscrewing jars).
i went to the doc and he gave me prednisone and capsaicin cream. i stopped using the arm and did back exercises that didn’t use the arm (much). my biceps lagged behind, but what could i do. the pain went away for the most part. but now it’s back. doc says it’s just tendonitis and i gotta get used to it. any thoughts?
