Thanks guys.

Well I took a 3 week break or so from climbing. Went back to the gym a few days ago to start easy.

Well, I bouldered and toproped. The pain was gone. I didnt push my self too hard, so i would start easy, but the main issue i was having is gone. My forearm and hands dont hurt from what felt like tendons and pulleys.


towards the end, I tried leading a 5.7+ and got pumped pretty fast, and the tightness came back, NOT AS BAD as it was before, but was still there. What bothered me the most, is the inability to control grip or even move my fingers. it just felt NUMB as a rock. I couldnt open my hand or close it. and needless to say....i took a whipper. It seems I only get the forearm stiffness/pump when toproping or leading. Bouldering is fine.

Perhaps it was just an overdose of climbing too much on my tendons and pulleys.

I wont climb more than once a week for now. and will go see a doctor about the tightness of the forearm.

im just happy the pain in forearms is gone....for now anyway.
