    Bicep stabbing pain

    I woke up Thursday last week with a stabbing pain on the top left of my right bicep. I did not lift Wednesday. The only thing I think I did was start a gas trimmer for my wife on wednesday. The pain is not constant. It only "stabs" when I reach for my wallet or moving in a certian way. I have no blood under the skin. I have seen some photos of torn biceps and also tendon tears. I am 100% sure that my bicep is stil connected. I can press on the bicep and that does not hurt. Only certain movements trigger the pain it feels like a knife. I have been taking Motrin and resting. I plan on taking off a week from lifting this week. it is time to take a break for a week.

    Any thoughts?

    I've had similar pains to those you are talking about but they went with icing and heating, never saw a dock and it went within a week.

    Sorry Jag

    Trap's right. Alongside the ice and heat, use 1g of vitamin C and 400IUs of vitamin E together. Aleve also works.

    Vitamin "I" interferes with healing, you know this, right?
    Wondering where to start? Confused? "Homework 1" will get you started.

    Think you're ready for the "next step"? Take this test.

    Bend your right arm 90 degrees (like halfway through a bicep curl) and then while keeping the 90 degree bend push it up (like you are doing a front double bicep but with your elbows in front) into an object.

    If it stabs or feels really weak it is most likely your bicep tendon sheath or capsule which can get inflamed and cause pain. Avoid any shoulder flexion movements (ie front raises, etc) and biceps where your elbow contracts past 90 degrees for a while.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    Thanks for the information you may have a somthing there.

    When I test like you said it doesn't do that. The weird thing is the stabbing pain is almost unnoticable now, but the area is tender to the touch now. No bruising, slight inflamation in the area.

    Not taking Ibuprofen for the last 2 days

    Last night I was able to work out arms. No stabbing pains! The area is still a little tender to the touch. But no stabbing pains! Went light on the weights but felt good.

    Alternating DB curls 15# x 20 20# x 20, 20, 13
    DB kickbacks 20# 10, 10,10,
    Jockey rows 80x 10,10,10
    Narrow grip cable tri press 50# x 12 70x 6, 60x 7
    45# DB tri press 7,7,8
    wide grip lat pull downs 60# x 15 70x 15 70x 14

    Hopefully this tenderness will go away soon
