    Default sharp pain in left forearm when doing bench-press

    I experienced a sharp pain in my left forearm (couple inches below the
    wrist) when doing bench press today. I wasn't going overboard with
    the weight... however, I tried reducing the weight by 20% and didn't
    feel the pain to the same extent. I thought this was odd since 1) I
    hadn't experienced this sort of pain before and 2) it was only in one
    arm.

    I don't recall doing anything to hurt my left arm... should I lay off
    bench presses for a while? Any ideas around what I may have hurt
    inadvertently and ways to help speed the recovery?

    Thanks!

    Internet diagnosis is worth what you pay for it - common sense applies,
    so just lay off bench pressing for a bit, start up with a light weight,
    and see how it feels. If you need, see a doctor, chiro, or physical
    therapist, especially if it hurts when you're not lifting.

    with all due respect, if it is bothering you to the point of asking
    here,... see a doctor, its the only advise I'm qualified to give.

    Rice it for a couple of weeks, then try again... I do that to my
    clavicle occasionally doing incline bench.

    It's carbo-loading for the skin.

    Thank you for your suggestion(s) - I laid off BP for a little while
    and didn't experience the pain when I started back up. Thanks!
