    Yep. Got it and was very frustrating. Still get it time to time. I had to do as little bicep work as possible for a few months to recover. Adding some cissus and fish oil helped too. Also, powerlifting hooks helped me out to take the tension off for bar curls.

    I've had the same pain, was during my last cycle. I believe that my bicep strength increased too rapidly to where my forearms could not catch up. Never had arthritis or anything but I imagine that is how it feels. As Flex said I had to take it light on biceps for about a month and a half. Even quit doing them altogether for about a week or two. Good luck, once you do get the pain under control try focusing on doing forearm workouts more frequently as I realized I was not hitting them enough on bicep day!

    I've had it in my right arm chiropractor said I had a pinched nerve in my neck think it was the radial nerve. Might be something to look into

    I've had pain similar to the sounds of that. I was told it was a torn muscle sheath. Somewhere around the line of fashinitis.

    It really hindered my chest workout today. I had to drop the weight on all exercises to push through it. On a good note, I go to the doc friday. Hopefully I won't have to take much time off, but it will give me a chance to hit my legs pretty hard

    Is there anything that can help this besides rest? I am not a fan of slowing down on progress when it is good.

    ok so the doc said its pretty bad tendenitis. i had a couple options: tanke a month off with ice, and anti-inflammatories, or two corisone shots two weeks apart. i opted for the shots as i dont want to miss 4 f'n weeks. but man, those things really hurt. i had one in my ankle in high school and never remember it ever hurting like like.
