starting a couple of weeks ago, whenever ive been climbing hard, trying new boulder problems, and just climbing a lot, when im real burnt out, and just traverseing, ill grab a hold(something like id grab a door knob), and a tendon in my fore-arm gets a shooting pain from the middle to the wrist. I know it might be tendoniteis, but it doesnt burn. Also im only 14 and have only be climbing since i was 8 and can only do it every saturday after work at the gym...what do you think is the problem
Thanks

well let me see. you said it shot through your arm when you climbed or anytime? if it's justr when you climb thewn i think you need to stay off of it for a little while. then if it still hurts you've probably pulled a muscle. So if that isn't good enough take the first responses advice

Ah, a fellow injured climber...
From the description of your injury, I did the same thing in Janurary, although it wasn't gradual like you're describing. Something shifted pretty violently in my arm. Anyway, get off the rock. Get to a doctor. You many want to see a hand specialist right away as a general doctor flat out told me she couldn't help me, had no idea what was wrong.
Quit climbing - that'll help immensly after a few weeks. See a doctor. If you do climb - and don't - tape up the wrist for support.
Luck...

thanks for the info, but to answer some questions, it only happens after ive been climbing hard, no other time. and mine wasn't really gradual...i didn't feel anything pop or anything, it just started one night and has been the same since. It will be impossible for me to not climb on it, so ill see what i can do ith tape. thanks again.

see a doctor. rest from climbing untill you know whats going on in your arm. the worst thing you could do is to ignore the pain, keep climbing and make it worse, possibly permenently damaging your tendons.

Where, EXACTLY, in your forearm does it hurt? If you are only 14, then you might have an issue where the muscle is pulling on what is called the growth plate of the bone...that's bad.

Get thee to an orthopedist, and promptly.

And rest until you do so...continuing to climb on an injured part is only inviting chronic problems in a few years.

Best,
