Backround: I hurt my right outside wrist at the end of may. Saw a doctor (diagnosed as strain), took 4 weeks off and ingested 2400mg of ibprofin a day, iced it a lot, didn't lift upper body only legs. It's been 4 weeks, my wrist is better but still hurts a lot when i twist it, so curling is out, chins are out, but im pretty pissed off so im starting back up on all other upper body lifts and im going to see if i can do those lifts now without further injuring myself. I don't know if i expect the problem to go away or what, but i figure by the time it heals summer will be over and i'll have wasted it.
Problem is, this extremely slow healing process is very common for me. I'm 17, i should heal fairly quickly. I can get cut by something and have the mark there for 1-3 months. I can strain a muscle and be out for 3 months. It's ridiculous. Doctors tell me "only about 2-3 weeks then you'll be fine" and 2-3 months later im still in pain. Is there anything i can do to speed up recovery? Supplements, food, activities, anything? This isn't normal, but no doctor i mention it to ever seems to think its a big deal.
