Bicep Pain


What is Bicep Tendonitis?

Bicep Tendonitis is a condition that affects the area between the bicep muscles, where it meets the front of the shoulder. It hardly occurs on it own and often Bicep Tendonitis is often called as bicipital tendonitis. Athletes are most common people who suffer from bicep tendonitis. It develops because of a rotator cuff tendonitis. Bicep tendonitis is mostly ignored in the early stage and develops into a serious complication.

Symptoms of Bicep Tendonitis

The most common symptoms of Bicep Tendonitis is as follows

(a) There will some pain when you move your shoulder or arm.

(b) There will be pain if you raise your arm above your shoulder.

(c) When your shoulder is touched you will feel the pain.

(d) Shoulder may be red and swollen or you may feel a burning sensation around the shoulder.

(e) You pain gets worse in the night or while get up in the morning.

Causes of Bicep Tendonitis:

1. Repetitive use

The most common cause of Bicep Tendonitis is repetitive use and the strain caused due to the usage. Repetitive strain and usage can come in many forms and many sources. This condition is often developed by people who work on factories that are because due to their repetitive nature of work. Athletes and sports persons do develop tendonitis due to the repetitive movements involved in their sports.

2. Tendonitis because of Age:

When humans get older it is a natural process that tendons get harder and lose their elasticity. Due to this the joints will not able to move freely and the flexibility will be lost. As people get older they are tend to develop Bicep Tendonitis. From research it has been found that when body gets aged the changes in blood vessels affect the tendons.

3. Too Much strain

Bicep Tendonitis due strain is the major cause among the bodybuilders and athletes. It tends to develop when the athletes and bodybuilders put the tendons under too much strain without any proper warming up. Or the more strain that the tendons could not manage. This can be avoided by corrective training techniques.

4. Due to Injury

It is common for a Tendonitis to develop due to an injury. For example Bicep Tendonitis is caused by the result of shoulder or rotator cuff tendonitis. In these circumstances the tendonitis develops because the injury has not completely healed. This kind of cause can be easily avoided by allowing ample rest to injured part.

Treatment for Bicep tendonitis

The treatment is mostly resting the affected area and slowly getting into action after proper rest.

The basic treatment is to rest the affected area from making any more activities.

All the over head exercise should be avoided.

Its better to apply ice pack every for 4 hours till the pain gets reduced.

The best thing to do for Bicep Tendonitis is to rest the affected area.

The affected area should get a rest of minimum 2 to 3 weeks.

How to Prevent?

As the saying goes Prevention is better than cure. It is always advised to warm up before any kind of exercise and should stretch and cool down after the exercise. If there is any little pain in the bicep area then apply Ice pack immediately. That will help to reduce the pain.

  3. QUESTION:
    Bicep pain?
    I took a football helmet to my left bicep a while back ago. Now it hurts when I’m hit there and there is a tight bump where the bicep meets the triceps on the outside of my left arm. The bump isn’t visible but I can feel it. Also it hurts when I flex that arm sometimes. Does anyone what is wrong? If so what should I do so it would go away?
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      The main problem with injuries of this sort to the biceps is compression of the muscle against the humerus.
      Rest and protection from injury are the recommended treatments. Some regular reflexion to help reduce stiffness and swelling. If you keep getting hit there, the pain will last quite a while. Maybe a wrap and a thin pad to offer some protection. You just need to get to the end of the season without aggravating it too much.

      Good luck!

  4. QUESTION:
    What should I do for bicep pain lasting more than six months?
    A muscle in my left arm has been sore for more than six months. It’s the muscle I use to lift the upper part of my arm (I think that would be the bicep). I’m especially aware of the pain when working out (I go to group fitness classes) and I wonder whether I ought to be working that arm less or more or not at all.

    • ANSWER:
      Everyone is going to say, “see a doctor” and while I agree I had this happen to me, only it was my leg. Take a break on that arm – for a week minimum and more if a week doesn’t help. By a break I mean, NO LIFTING at all or otherwise working it out.

      If there is no improvement you may need to see a doctor. It may be ….

      When my leg did this I gave it a break. That didn’t help so I then worked it out harder than normal. Eventually the pain stopped. However you never know when it might be something serious.

  7. QUESTION:
    Right Bicep Muscle Pain Could I have a torn muscle?
    I have severe pain in my bicep muscle on my right side. It looks a little larger than the left but there is no bruising. It hurts to move my arm up or down. I did take a hit to the bicep which seemed to have pulled my arm back. I thought I may have bruised the muscle but there is no bruising around the arm a day after. The muscle hurts to touch on or around the muscle. Could I have torn the muscle?

    • ANSWER:
      Did you hear or feel a “pop?

      I’m a licensed P.T. …. From what you have described, it _sounds_ like you may have ruptured your biceps tendon. This is something that might likely require surgery to reattach (depending on age and if it is fully ruptured vs a bad strain). Either way, I agree the others, you need to consult your family physician, and then, if necessary, will get a referral to an orthopedic specialist.

    pulling bicep pain whenever i extend my arm?
    About two weeks ago I was lifting weights and really pushed it to the point where I had a sharp pain on my biceps(right arm).

    whats the pain level when getting a tattoo on your bicep?
    im about to get a tattoo on my bicep, from my elbow to my armpit (inner side of my bicep)…and i was just curios on what the pain level is going to be like??? its going to be a very detailed and its going to be in color. its roses with a wolf. any insight, of tips to lesson the pain would be very appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      It’s going to depend on your pain tolerance as well as how heavy handed your tattoo artist is. The inside of the arm is more sensitive than the outside, so it will be a little more painful. Basically any place that is very ticklish tends to be a more painful location. I would only give it a rating of 4 out of 10 on the pain scale though. Nothing feels worse than a tattoo over your ribs or the ditch in your arm. You’ll be just fine.Just make sure to get a good night’s sleep and eat a decent meal before your appointment. Bring along a soda or a candy bar with you to the session, it’s good to keep your blood sugar level up.

  22. QUESTION:
    Strange pain in my right bicep?
    I know that the correct term for a single bicep is plural, ‘biceps’, because there are two bundles of muscle tissue running alongside each other, but I have this odd pain in what feels like a third of my right biceps, it feels like there are three muscle and the middle one is really hurting. Has anyone else felt this before? What might it be? I can’t think of any reason I may have injured it, i’ve actually been taking a brake from lifting weights.

    • ANSWER:
      There are three. The two biceps and the brachialis. The brachialis is actually the strongest flexor of the elbow. It is located under the biceps in the middle. When you do hammer curls you work them. It’s not uncommon for that muscle to get a little sore. Also, the connecting tendons can get tendonitis if you’re not careful. Take a week or two off from weightlifting. If you cannot take that long off, at least avoid bicep exercises for a while. Ice it 3 to 4 times a day for 20 minutes. It should start feeling better soon.

  24. QUESTION:
    I started doing bicep curls and had some pain in the lower back after. Will this pain stunt my growth?
    It didn’t hurt my lower back when I did the curls, just a couple of days later. Will this lower back pain permanently stunt my growth? I am 15 1/2 years old.

    • ANSWER:
      The lower back pain could be from many different things other than weight lifting. However, if it is from weight lifting, it is because your posture isn’t straight up. It could be that you’re curling with your body leaning forward and/or you’re using your back for the last couple of reps because you’re struggling. For example leaning backwards to help pull up the curl.

      Weight lifting won’t stunt your growth; it is a myth.

    • ANSWER:

  26. QUESTION:
    why do i feel pain in my forearms when i bicep curl?
    when i bicep curl with dumbbells i always feel pain on my fore arms like i am working them out.

    • ANSWER:
      In a short answer, when you do bicep curls you ARE working out your forearms. Forearms are secondary muscles in almost all bicep exercises (I can’t actually think of one that isn’t). Think about it, if your arm is a lever and your elbow is the fulcrum, your biceps contract to move your weight, hand, and forearm, toward your shoulder. Your forearms flex much like your biceps do, helping to move the weight upwards toward your shoulders. You will also notice your upper back or lats also get sore after a lot of curls. This is because your lats stabilize the rest of your body in relation to the weight. Holding the weight in front of you as it moves up takes muscle in your back to make sure you don’t fall over or slouch.

      Now if the pain you feel in your forearms is a I’m-working-them-out pain like normal muscle soreness in the forearm muscles, this is perfectly normal and just means you are building up forearm strength as well as bicep strength. If it is a sharp piercing pain or a pain in your joints, this is a bad type of pain and you should get that checked out.

      Hope this helped!

  27. QUESTION:
    Lower bicep and elbow pain after getting hit in the arm while throwing football?
    I was in throwing motion with the football when a defender behind me got his hand on the ball at the point where I would have released the ball. This caused my elbow to “jam” or get pressed forward a bit, perhaps hyper-extended? Immediately there was some pain in my elbow, but it seemed to go away. Two days later I threw again and my elbow became sore almost immediately. The soreness is a little higher on the elbow and into the lower bicep. It tingles a little when I’m not doing anything, but my range or strength does not seem significantly impaired. Any ideas about diagnosis, and/or more importantly prognosis? I’m supposed to play in three days. Is that smart if I wear a brace? Whats typical recovery based on your opinion of the problem?

    Thank you!

Would anyone know?

  35. QUESTION:
    Left shoulder and bicep pain…?
    I am a 27 year old male. I am healthy for the most part, other than i suffer from “anxiety disorder”. The last few days my left arm and bicep have been hurting, to the point where i made an er visit last night. I had an ekg, blood work, and chest ex ray to make sure it wasnt heart related. All tests came back normal. The pain shoots in my shoulder blade and bicep and i have occasional tingling in my fingers. Anyone have anything like this?

    • ANSWER:
      By the information given I would place a guess on one of two things. The first is that you have muscle spasms in the neck which are clamping down on the nerves that control those areas. The second goes along with the first but the cause is from a problem at C5-6 and or C6-7 depending on which fingers are involved. The “anxiety disorder” makes me think that it is more likely the first of the two. Talk to your doctor about seeing a physical therapist. The therapist would help you with any postural issues that might be present, muscular spasms or tension, and muscular imbalances, and if there are any disc problems that would also be addressed. The treatment might be exercise only to correct postural or muscular imbalances and the use of massage or other techniques to calm the irritation of the nerves and muscles. At home use a soft cervical collar when you sleep as this will reduce the amount of tension imparted to the neck while you sleep. If you work at a computer terminal the proper alignment of things in an ergonomic way would also help to reduce the stress on the area. Make a conscious effort to sit and stand up straight.

  36. QUESTION:
    Weight lifting Bicep pain?
    I recently started following a high intensity workout that was published in a book I got at GNC. I have had a terrible pain in my left bicep. The workout I did was using my 15 rep max; 10 sets of 15 reps. They were barbell curls. After I did those I moved onto dumbbell curls with my ten rep max. I did 10 sets of ten reps. I followed what the book said. At first it felt like my muscles had an excellent work out. Now thre days later I have pain in my left arm and i cant bend it 180 degrees without having a lot of pain. I can bend it to about 135 degrees without pain. I have tried muscle rub and pain pills but nothing helps. Any idea of what could be wrong? I don’t want stupid non helpful answers.

    • ANSWER:
      First two answers hit the nail right on the head. Definitely take it slow, you won’t become superman in a day. When you workout make sure you are giving yourself a good workout and not pushing your body too far past its limits. It does sound like you have overworked the muscles or possibly strained or pulled them (This is especially easy to do if you are unsure of how to do an exercise and end up doing it wrong). My home remedy for pulls strains and overwork is some rest but not complete rest but also Ice and heat. Initially Ice is great for directly after the injury as it reduces the swelling. First I suggest icing it for about 5 Minutes then let the area warm back up to normal temperature then apply heat (I use a heating pad, they work well if you have one) for about 20 mins. The Ice is really for pain and the heat helps healing by opening the blood vessels. If there is a lot of pain Ice every now and then when you feel necessary (Don’t do it all of the time though) And heat probably 3 times a day for about 15-20 minutes each time. After heating (Or during) Stretch your muscles for a little but, not pushing very hard.

      One of the replies also said to get a personal trainer, which for a high intensity workout, is a very good idea. A personal trainer can evaluate and help you to know your limits while what a book says is geared towards anyone and not your personal needs.

A sound advice is welcome, since she had this pain since 2 hours ago and I already gave her Tylenol arthiris and her pain subsided a little. She has been at the hospital for fast heart beat and this pacemeker implant last December.
    Thanks, Jimbo49!
    Thanks, Tina

    • ANSWER:
      I think she should be on beta blockers to regulate her heart beat and anti inflammatory drugs for her arthritis. She could be suffering from stress pains at the moment and needs to relax more. Gentle walks in the fresh air should also help.(supervised)

  41. QUESTION:
    bicep muscle pain what helps?
    I started weight training recently and after working on my arms in the gym my bicep muscle is paining me. Its been sore for the last two days i can’t straighting my arm and getting to sleep with the pain is hard. Did i tear a muscle and what can i do to recover.

    • ANSWER:
      i would strongly suggest you use MediTowles. they’re these little discrete towelettes that relieve muscle and joint pain. all you have to do is rub it on where the pain is and almost instantly its gone!
      i like using them better than the icy hot patches because the menthal smell is so strong and you have to leave them on.
      when it comes to instant pain relief after i hit the gym i always use them [:

  42. QUESTION:
    How much pain compared to other parts of the body is the under arm/bicep area?
    I have been researching a little, I have heard multiple views some say it is not that bad and some people say it is one of the worst. I know everyone has different pain tolerances, just want your opinions. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I have both arms fully sleeved and the pain was minor. The worst part was sitting with the arm twisted and extended. It tends to fall asleep and may stiffen up.

  43. QUESTION:
    I have pain in my left bicep. It doesn't feel like the muscle, but just in front of it. What could this be?
    It doesn't hurt very often when I'm lifting weights or normal everyday activity, but when I run (jogging where the arm is moving up and down) if I don't keep my arm from moving I experience sharp pain. This pain feels like something (not the muscle) is tearing in the bicep area and the pain is pretty intense, but doesn't last long. This has been going on for about a week and a half now. Does anyone know what this might be?

    • ANSWER:
      Use the other arm

  45. QUESTION:
    Pain In My Arm When Doing Bicep Curls?
    Alright, I have been doing the same amount of bicep curls for about 5 weeks now.
    Why? Because as I go pain starts to emerge on my forearms and my actual bicep never hurts at all and I need to stop. I thought this would get better as I went but it hasn't. What is wrong?

    • ANSWER:
      Either your killing your muscles by stretching them without you knowing or your weights are too heavy and your body isn't used to so you should start off at a smaller weight and increase in size everyweek so your bodys used to it. Give your arms for a break fora few days... Blimey.

  46. QUESTION:
    Bicep pain, is it soreness, sprain or tendon tear?
    I was doing bicep and hammer curls 2 days ago and on my left arm when I finish at the top of the movement I felt something, like a tendon or ligament move, it wasn't painful but I never experienced anything like it

    Now there is a dull pain when I fully extend or flex my left arm. The pain is in the lower part of the biceps, near the inner elbow [palms up]

    Is it a strain, soreness or what else can it be?

    I am not sure if it’s pain in the bicep or brachioradalis, but the pain is mainly concentrated when fully extended on the most left part of the arm beneath the bicep on my left arm.

    • ANSWER:
      oh I hope when you weighlift, you do it properly. There’s a whole science behind it and so many people do just whatever they want. If you’re doing bicep curls, then you need to make sure you excercise your tricep as well. The two work opposite of one another. When you do a curl, the bicep contracts BUT ALSO, the tricep extends. You need to excercise the tricep by doing lets say “kickbacks” so that it too is strengthened. If you only work out the bicep and not the tricep, eventually, the tricep wont be able to support the added weight and you may end up hurting yourelf. That goes for every other muscle in your body.

      You might have just pulled your muscle. try heat. if the pain doesnt go away in a few days, maybe see a doctor.

  48. QUESTION:
    I have this bicep pain!?
    Since rugby on saturday i have had a slight pain near the top of my right bicep, on the side nearest to my body. If i feel along the side of my bicep it feels as though there a little dip in it. It wasn’t too bad until today when i lifted something up and felt a sharp pain, which now hurts whenever i try and put any sort of pressure on it. Has anyone got any ideas on what the problem could be?

    • ANSWER:
      You’ve probably ripped the muscle and it needs time to heal. I’d see a doctor to be on the safe side, but its probably not anything you can do expect wrap it tightly and down some advil. I did this once myself and it hurt like a mofo for about a month. Good luck.

    Shooting Bicep pain.?
    The other day i started to feel a shooting pain on the inside of my right bicep. I don’t remember doing anything to hurt myself it just seems like it appeared out of nowhere. It feels like a shooting buring tingling pain from my arm pit down the inside of my bicep. It DOESNT travel past my elbow. It is ONLY in my bicep. The pain occurs mostly when i raise my arm (think lateral raise, arm abduction) with my elbew slightly bent. I happens during other movements but it happens most during the movement i described above. Can someone help me figure out what is going on and what i should be doing for treatment? I dont really think its muscle related…
    No no roids… in fact i really dont even work out
