Over the past two weeks I have been experiencing pain on the opposite side of my elbow where the bicep and forearm connect. Its a slightly sharp pain where I force myself to get through it.
I usually try to 50 - 75 total pullups at least three times a week, sometimes weighted (wherein the reps would be less) obviously that has been stopped. Today for instance I was doing rack pulls (no problem), Bent over rows (no problem), HS rows (no problem) but pullups (big problem). I got through'em but the pain is pretty bad and seems to be getting worse.
I am going to make an appointment with an orthopdedic this week but I am afraid of what they will say. Last time I went which was about 5 years ago the doc wanted to perform arthroscopic surgery because of a "SLAP Lesion." I said fuck it and didnt do it, and have had no problems since. Sometimes I believe surgeons are to quick to perform surgery, and quite frankly the fear of being out of commision for 6 weeks or moreis tough to take. The pain is starting to influence the weight I use during my chest routine as well.
Any help would be appreciated.
