I hurt my elbow lifting something (not in the gym).
For about 2 weeks after I hurt it, my elbow would pop everytime I hyperextend it. It would be so painful that I would have to take my hand to the back of my elbow and move the tendon to the side. After I did this, the pain wouldn’t be there.
If I did not move the tendon over, it would not let me contract and extend my arm. This went on for two weeks along with a tendon popping noise.
I am about 80% better, but it still hurts when I curl or do tricepts. I can feel it at the base where my bi meets my elbow and on the back side where my tri meets my elbow.
There was never any swelling or discoloration throughout the entire injury, but it has been about 6 weeks and is still not fully healed.
Is this something that will heal with time?
