I’m 32 years old. I have been weight training now for about six months and I took the time to carefully research what to do and how to do it before I began. Visually my gains have been exceptional. Strengthwise my gains are not all that, but I know it takes time.
I have developed a very very strange problem. I tried to do web research and figure out what it is, but I have found almost nothing. What little I did find did not really sound like the symptoms I am experiencing.
This is happening in my forearms and in my lower legs. When I do any kind of arm curl at all, whether it be with freeweights or machines I get this scary painful sensation that the bones in my forarm are bending. The pain is NOT coming from the muscle at all, but from the bones inside it. I swear, sometimes it feels like they are really about to snap. It’s bizarre.
And likewise when I am running or doing certian portions of my leg routine, my shinbones get this crazy sensation that they are flexing and bending. And I don’t think it’s my shos because I have some of the finest running shoes in the world. I have always taken suplements that include calcium, and have always been a healthy eater. The protien bars and shakes I eat also usually have calcium in them, so really doubt it’s a nutritional thing.
What in the world is this? Anyone got a clue? Have you ever heard of someone breaking a limb from lifting weights?
My doctor is kind of a creep and doesn’t seem to know a thing about sports medicine so I thought I would ask you guys… the experts… first!
