View Full Version : Swollen forearm

05-04-2010, 04:25 PM
Was finishing my workout with a set of curls when a few reps in I felt a tingling in my forearm. Immediately after, my left forearm was swollen and noticeably larger than the right but there was no pain and I still have all my strength. I went to the onsite physiotherapist right away and she said theres no muscle tear or anything because I have no pain and she wasn't sure what it was. I'm icing it right now and if it doesn't go away by tomorrow I'm going to the doctors. Any ideas?

Is it hot to the touch, or red?

My instinct is that it's some sort of infection, but it's pretty hard to say lol.

Definitely get it checked out though.

I would just get it checked out. I wouldn't worry yourself about what you may or may not find on the internet regarding your symptoms.
