While benching or overhead pressing, the fleshy part of my left palm feels pain, as if there’s a knot inside it. I can generally locate the knot of pain with a knuckle and massage it (if that helps).
I’ve had this for awhile, and just accepted it as an “occupational hazard” until yesterday, when a lifter half my age came to me describing the same thing and asking me if it were carpal tunnel and did he have to worry about it.
I’ve done some searching on WebMD.com, but can’t confirm that this symptom alone is a sign of carpal tunnel.
Does anyone have a diagnosis for this pain?
