    Angry Injury forearm

    Hi guys!
    hope some of you can help me here...

    so i am at the moment in a very remote area of Tanzania (africa) with no way to get to any specialist.
    I have been pushing hard in the gym, doing a bit of crossfit style workouts, lots and lots of pullups.

    After a workout i started to feel some tension in my forearm, in the inside of the forearm. The tension started in the inside of the forearm, but after became a pain that is generalized in the whole forearm, sometimes also in the wrist but mainly in the same point in the inside of the forearm.

    I stopped any upper body work, and waited for it to go away, when it didnt i took some anti inflammatory medicines (naproxen). Now is a total of 3 weeks with no upper body work and 1 week of naproxen,i am going crazy and want to go back training.... do you have any idea of what it could be? any safe exercise i could start doing again? Maybe resistance bands?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Jambo...I've been to TZ. Dar, Zanzibar, Kilimanjaro, Arusha, and the Serengeti.

    Have you tried heat and ice (albeit ice is probably a commodity)?

    Are you curling your wrists when you're doing pull ups, or letting your grip loosen so that you're just holding on with your fingertips? Both of those things can overload and strain the forearm tendons, and cause tendinitis, which is what it sounds like you're suffering from. Next time you pull up get a really good hard grip on the bar and make sure that you don't bend your wrists at all when you do your reps. Also try to both massage the sore areas, and find forearm stretches that hit the painful areas and do them a bunch. When you go back to training start off with high frequency but really low volume, and gradually return to higher reps over time (maybe not as much as you did before because crossfit type workouts are often too high volume and cause these issues). If it's tendinitis then rest won't help for more than a couple of days after the soreness started, you'll just re-injure yourself when you return to training; tendons heal a lot better if they're gently worked as they recover, that's what the stretching and low volume work will do. For forearm tendinitis some people also swear by wrist rollers, no idea if you can get your hands on one of those but they're probably pretty easy to make, and worth looking into. Let me know if you want more specifics, hope this advice helps.
