So I'm having an issue with getting shirted up that I haven't heard of before, and I just wanted to see if anyone else had experienced it or had any thoughts. I've done two sessions in a shirt, and although I was expecting to get mangled on my arms/chest/etc., I'm also getting bruises elsewhere that I'm having a hard time figuring out.
Both times that I've used the shirt I've had pretty severe bruising in my lower abdomen- one big bruise on each side about 3-4 inches above my junk. After my most recent session, I noticed swelling an hour or two after training- enough so that I actually went to the doctor yesterday out of fear that I'd given myself a hernia. Luckily, he diagnosed it as a nasty hematoma, but I'm still playing it cautiously until the swelling goes down some. Seriously this thing is a 3 inch by 2 in oval the color that grape kool aid stains your fingers.
In my first session we really cranked the belt on tight when we were getting the shirt set, so this time I specifically left the belt looser... and yet this time the bruising is actually worse on the right side (where the hematoma is), but not nearly as bad (albeit still present) on the left side. I'd think it was just the belt cutting into me, but they're a couple inches below where the belt sits.
Does anyone have any thoughts about what the **** keeps happening? Horror and disgust is not exactly the response I want to get from my girlfriend when I take off my pants. I couldn't give a **** less about my arms and armpits looking like I've been getting flogged, but this **** below the belt has got to stop.
