Let me know if this is posted in the wrong forum:
4 years ago I broke my left radial head from a snowboarding accident. I made a "full recovery" with physical therapy and was able to fully straighten my left arm. I have since then lifted weights off and on and been moderately active.
I began rock climbing December 20th going to the gym two to three times a week to boulder(climbing a short wall with beyond vertical routes).
A couple weeks ago I went skiing and was pushing my self around with the poles slightly hurt my left elbow it wasn't very painful but I noticed I twisted it weird. After we left skiing there was no observable pain.
The week after I went skiing I went to the climbing gym as normal and after an hour and a half of climbing my left arm was in pain with the source of pain coming from my elbow.
I then went climbing 2 days later and my elbow started to hurt after about 2 sets and as I continue to climb the pain got worse to the point were I cannot bend my hand backwords without a pain.
I then took a few days off
Today I can climb and after a few sets I get little to moderate pain that I can deal with. (I am trying to stay away from bouldering routes that put extra stress on my arms)
I am not sure if my pain is because I am still building strength in my left elbow which still hasn't fully recovered or if there is something more serious.
What would you do if this pain happened to you?(and you were a poor college student) Any advice would be very very useful!!!!
Thank you for any help or advice you have!!!!!
