Problem with muscle asymmetry?
Ok my right arm is way bigger than my left arm. With every workout I do I can only feel it in my right arm even if I use perfect form. For example, today I was benching and making sure i kept the bar perfectly straight. After 1 set, my right arm was swole, sore, hard and vascular. Especially in my bicep which benching doesn't work. My left arm felt nothing at all. No pump, no soreness, nothing. I couldn't possibly have better form even if I tried. I feel like its only a matter of time before my right arm is awkwardly bigger than my left. I wanna fix this but Ive been trying for years now and clearly I can't. Any advice on what I should do?

Nobody is fully symmetrical, point blank. Maybe your exerting more force with the one arm.. Try doing isolated curls

I went to the ortho today and they said that it doesn't really mean anything, which to me makes no sense.

Give it some rest and do a postural evaluation. Ever been in an accident or suffered a serious injury?

stop doing right are only exercises.(just stimulate the muscle) If your right hand dominant you probably do alot with your right arm. Try doing more with your left, like picking up plates or dumbbells. It's going to take a while but should equal out.

I have this problem with my entire body. i am right hand dominant but but left side is bigger.
My brother has this problem with his pecs and the doctor told him he was missing a layer of muscle on the one side.
My pecs is the same but not as pronounced as my bro's. My left arm is bigger, as well as my quadracep, and calf even tho I am right handed.
I am stronger with my right but the left is bigger.
I have been thinking of trying to correct it by concentrating on my smaller side more.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

I would get a second opinion from someone else. It could be a nerve thing. At least, stop doing barbell work for your upper body and use dumbbells. How's your shoulder flexibility? Do you stretch regularly?
