I need your help fellow BJJers. If you are a doctor or physiotherapist as well, chime in. I have this long-lasting injury. I’ve talked about it before. It’s REALLY starting to tick me off…
On October 30, 2013 I was arm barred. I did not tap in time. It wasn’t as though I was trying to prove something. I just thought I could escape. WRONG! I felt the pop and the sharp pain of hyper-extension. There was no damage to the joint as far as I could tell. I iced it and took a bit of ibuprofen. Now… This is where the nagging injury comes in. Look at the picture above. I am pointing to th spot on my forearm where I am in pain. When I lift things, and not even weights, I get sharp, cramping pain in this spot. It has also affected my ability to grip the gi.
Now obviously because I am a man, I can’t possibly go to the doctor for something like this. Instead, I’m asking people whom I have never met, to tell me what to do. 🙂
What do you thing? Suggestions? Don’t say, “go to the doctor”.
