I had surgery in June 2011 to fix torn cartilage in my right wrist, was put into a full arm cast (for the 2nd time that year) for a month. After it came off, my doctor did not want me to do rehab so I just had to stretch my wrist a lot throughout the day, and after 6 months of that I had most of my motion back and could continue lifting.
I’ve been lifting for 2 months now, bringing my strength back up in my right arm, but I get this weird snapping/numbness in my right lower arm if I try to do pullups, and occasionally db bench/ db incline bench. It’s at the top of the movement for the pullups. The snap happens down near my elbow on the inside (where it bends) on the forearm half of my arm and shoots up toward my thumb.
I can only get it to happen when my hand is pronated (like a pullup) and when Im flexing/using the muscle. Happens when my elbow is most of the way bent, like either a nerve is getting pinched or theres no room left for my tendon and it has to get shoved out of the area. Feels kind of like a rubber band being pulled a bit then letting go, that “snap” and little vibrations that accompany it.
Anyone know what this is? Or what I should do? Im almost positive its a result of my surgery.
