/ injury diagnosis help
Went back to the wall and after 10 mins of warming up it was back with a vengeance, it especially hurts when I clench my ring finger although the pain is not so bad.
Anyone familiar with something like this? I've injured fingers before, but the pain was 'in the finger' rather than halfway down the forearm... so its kinda hard to hold it in a pan of water (as dave mac suggests).... Hoping its just a mild tendon strain and rest + pizza will cure it as I'm unsure of how to treat it otherwise.
Deep tissue massage of the forearm and contrast baths helped a lot, still took a while to get back to full form. Good luck!
Perhaps its wishful thinking but this kinda leads me to believe that it may just be a strain and that climbing really aggravated it... Were your symptoms similar? When I injured my finger it hurt for 24 hours a day.
It wasn't that long ago either and took 8 weeks before i could climb properly again and another 4 before i was back to my regular level... it was just starting to come together again :( can't bare going through that again
