This is a bit difficult to say without sounding like a complete idiot so I’ll get right to the point. Recently I’ve discovered my right arm is almost an inch longer than my left arm. Well, my forearm is anyways.
Aesthetically, I really don’t mind as it is nearly unnoticeable. I have to tell people it’s uneven for them to see and from it I have received much taunting and ridicule. Despite this minor setback, I have continued to workout out dilligently, reaching new personal bests just last week, but recently as I’ve been lifting heavier weights, I am actually having difficulty maintaining balance, especially in exercises such as deadlifts and pullups.
I’ve also been getting a fair amount of hip pain from exercises like deadlifts as I unconciously try to correct myself when my right side feels lower than my left. Luckily the pain is nothing I can’t work through, but the thing is the left side of my body seems much more defined than my right and I’m a bit scared of throwing out my back or something if I lift longer.
I was wondering what I should do. I don’t want to injure myself, but I don’t want to stay at low weights forever. Now that I’ve discovered how to lift properly I actually find lifting fun. I’ve even contemplated breaking my arm again simply to have it level…
I will probably go see a doctor about this, but I was wondering if I could get any advice on my situation. Sorry, but I really don’t know what I’m asking. I guess I’m more distraught over my newfound anomaly more than anything.
