  • Naggy Injury/Pain

    First off i felt this was a more appropriate forum for my particular issue because it is irritated by HG throwing.
    I have a pain on my right side maybe intercostal/psoas but deep.Feels like what ever is attached to the rib cage.
    I am a right handed thrower and it hurts only on the right side.It gets aggravated doing the torqing throws, stones,weights and hammers especially the heavier weights.
    Pain can be as little as a 1 or 2 on a pain scale or 7 to 8.
    When i lay off throwing(two to three weeks) it gets better but returns with a good day of throwing.
    Haven't seen a doc i just have an HMO so i probably know about as much as him about whats going on and can prescribe myself advil,ice and rest.
    Linear movements don't seem to bother it to just torquing or turning at the waist.
    Any Gamers had anything like this and what did you do if you did.
    I layer off for a long while and felt good but it returned with heavy weight and stone throwing.

    You might just have to bite the bullet and go to the Doc. I mean it's either that or quit...and quitting is never an option. Go find out what's wrong at least it can set your mind at ease...

      I have torn my oblique off the rib in a small area...it took about 6 months to return to rotational activities and very heavy deadlifts. I am not a thrower but if you have torn an oblique significantly- obvious, gross bruising, then it will take some time to recuperate. It took about 1yr to heal fully, I am no longer limited but if I really stress it I have some point tenderness the next day.

        Thanks Andy.
        That certainly sounds similar to whats bothering me although i have had no bruising or discoloration.
        I probably have to think long term for this and not a month or two.

          With no bruising I wonder if you damaged some of the cartilaginous tissue in the rib cage.? Muscle tears, even deep ones are usually associated with some bruising.

            Steve,

            My vote is for you to visit your doctor. He might know more about your specific injury than a bunch of folks on the internet. My wife had a nagging problem and went to her chiropractor, then her physical therapist, then her nurse before going to the doctor. A quick MRI found the problem right away and in retrospect should have been the first thing we did. You will get on the healing path a lot quicker when you know specifically what the problem is.

              I know Eric that is sound advice.
              I'm definitly not trying to get medical advice but rather an idea what others that have had the same or similar issue and what it might be.
              Not that my doc is ignoant but he is not athletic and has diagnosed issues in the past with the advil and ice therapy which is very general treatment when i knew it was more serious.
              HMO's you know.You have to be in almost a very serious condition to be referred to a specialist.
              Very expensive to pay on your own.
              I guess for now it will be do what doesn't hurt it and give it a rest.

                Steve,
                That MRI set us back over $500.00. At least we know what the problem is.
