I was doing Scott curls last night, when I felt a sharp pain in my left bi. I stopped, iced it, and later on took some ibuprofen, and was pain free the rest of the evening.
Today I'm still pain free as long as the arm is relaxed, but it hurts if I try to flex the bi. I can't fully flex it either, and the top part of the muscle sort hangs down a bit on the inside of the arm.
At the top of the bi, about an inch from the bi/front delt 'tie in', there is a distinct 'bump' in the muscle. Maybe 1/2 centimeter at the deepest, an inch or so long.
There is no discoloration.
Does this sound like a partial tear to you? I had a similar experience with my hamstring years ago, and that was a partial tear.
I've called my doc and have an appointment tomorrow, but is there really anything that can be done, short of rest, in your experience?
