Sorry if this has been done but all “tricep pain” posts i saw were for elbow tendonitis.
last monday i was getting out of bed and felt a sharp pain in my tricep (marked green in the attached photo). since then, the area is half numb to the touch all the time but if i touch the exact stop it feels like a pin is in there. It doesnt hurt to flex my tricep at all, but if i extend it it feels like the same pin pain (stretch it, such as in the bottom position of an incline press).
I haven’t done any pressing yet, but felt pain while doing heavy deadlifts last friday.
The pain isn’t too bad but it’s weirding me out thinking i tore it somehow. no bruising or swelling or even marks on the skin at all. it hasn’t gotten better or worse in this last week.
if anyone has any idea what this is please let me know. I’m going to try benching today and see if it hurts.
