    Default pain in my right arm

    well, im a high school sophomore, and im about 5'8 at 140 pounds..

    for about the past week and a half, ive had sharp pains in my right arm near the tricep area. This pain last for about 10 seconds and comes every 5 minutes to maybe a couple hours.. Also when i am done playing a game, it feels as if my arm has no energy and i can barely hold my racquet..ive been on the badminton team since february, and have been training for the past few months..



    can anybody help diaginose this pain?

    I think what you need a a couple days of rest? I think your overworking your arm. Is your form correct?

    Before i was using an isometric 75 mf, then i bought a muscle power 100, on my first game with it (which i lost) my elbow started to feel like a bruise, is this because im not use to it, or its too heavy for my arm, since the isometric 75 is really light

    You said it yourself, playing 3-6 times is somewhat over working it. Are you playing every other day or consecutively? Rest is very important for badminton. I suggest you take a couple of days off until your pain goes away. Avoid taking pain killers.

    I read somewhere that it's best to let the muscle sore/pain go away naturally. If you take pain killers, it takes longer for the pain to go away.

    This is a very common occurance among many of my friends who play badminton including myself. It's really if you overwork yourself or when you have a new racquet that gets you pumped to smash more lol.

    Suggestion: Rest like everyone else has said. When I mean rest, I mean don't play ANY badminton for at least 3 days. Also, don't do any practice swings either during those 3 days even the shadow swings when you're pretending to have a racquet in your hand. You gotta resist the temptation!!

    your doctor probably means anti-inflammatory medicine...such as advil. Advil will block the pain yes, but it also reduced inflammation of tendons and muscles. However, you should'nt take an advil and then play, because you might injure something without knowing it, since pain would be deadened.

    yea, thats what my doctor told me about my back pain.. except i didn't know how to fully translate from chinese to english i dont think she told me not to take advil before you play though.. i'm not sure haha.. anyways, the pain is gone now, so its all good (p.s. i only took advil on the first day, two pills, and rested for another 2 days)

    Advil is just one brand out of about twenty nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) called ibuprofen. These NSAID drugs relieve pain and inflammation, more effective in the former and less so in the latter because of low dosage. Although it is a NSAID, which means you can buy them over-the-counter, there are possible side effects. For first-timers it is wise to have a doctor to prescribe. It can cause gastrointestinal bleeding, ulcers, and perforation.

    oh man i hate it when that happens. sometimes it gets so numb i can't feel a thing, it's like DEAD for real. then i grasp it and start rubbing it and shaking. it acts like a ragdoll for the first several seconds, then when i can feel my fingers i start to rotate it like a windmill. awful it is man

    pain killers causes gastric and bad for your kidneys. the best is to rest and let it heal. unless you say you're a pro player and your job requires you to be on the court

    Tylenol is basically a branded version of Paracetamol.

    Unlike the NSAID group paracetamol has no anti-inflamatory effects so would not be as useful in these cases as things like ibruprofen are mainly prescribed for their anti-inflamatory effects rather than their pain killing effects.
