Huge Swelling On Proximal Phalanx

I have been doing snatch-grip DLs on a platform them for more than 3 months. Reps are ~5 for about 4 sets of 220-230.

2 weeks ago I did a set of 3 with 185# … and the first segment on my right ring finger swelled like a FUCKING BALLOON. The edema calmed down, but it is still quite tender and I can’t wear a ring on that finger.

My ring and middle fingers have had mild swelling in the same segments. Once every 3 or 4 months that particular segment will have the same problem and it will last for 2-3 minutes.

Since then I have had pain in my forearms during chins/rows.

Any thoughts?

No shit, I just went back and edited my original post. At first I read your comment and thought “What a jerk.” Then, I reread my post and realized… I deserved at least that much ribbing.

Ever here of anyone having specific swelling of the fingers when doing DL’s, chins, etc?

It’s the title of the thread that’s givin’ it away too easily.
