    I went to the gym for the first time in years.. i was in for about an hour and a half, i probably spent about 40 minutes on the weights. My arm is constantly achy, every time i move it the pain is severe and i cant even lift a glass to my mouth

    Obviously i know that it sounds like a 'boohoo man up and take the pain' scenario but having arthritis and having had 2 knee operations (keyhole and a spatial frame) i am at a far higher pain threshold than any of you achy muscle gymheads

    Jokes aside, i cant actually move it too much, it is constantly painful just above the elbow and up towards the shoulder..if anyone far more experienced in the gym could inform me why only one of my arms feels like this (i am right handed) if stationary weights and machines could do any serious damage or if anyone else has ever had the same sort of sensation?

    How long since you went to the gym? Did you warm up? What were you eating/drinking? Give it a week and if it's still not right then go and see a doctor.

    My shoulder is killing me at the moment for a different reason but I'm leaving it for the time being.

    There's your answer. You need to build up to doing it. No point lifting weights that are too heavy for you if they're gonna mean you can't recover well afterwards!

    I went on Thursday, usually the pain goes but it feels a little more intense today! I will deal with it as my brother (who goes to the gym) thinks im being a pussy as i can still move one arm!

    I did warm up, i was drinking water through the session an i ate an hour and a bit before like i do when i go swimming.

    It's probably a strain but could be a pull, hard to tell really but whatever way you'll be sound. Get to the docs next week and get it checked out don't be assed what your bro says.

    lol, so instead of going to hospital to get it checked out just in case, you go on TSR and presumably type this post with only your left hand? makes sense.

    Was their brusing on your arm ? If so would indicate a mild - serious strain.
    Make sure you warm up.
    And i would get it checked out Just in case, with injuries caused by weightlifting the longer you leave it the worse. Just go your gp

    Maybe a strain?

    I think I might have mildly strained my wrist as it hurts to extend/twist my wrist. Furthermore, its really stiff in the morning and I get this disgusting feeling that the tendons are moving over eachother. Its not swollen but it hurts to put pressure on the area of the wrist near my thumb.

    Friend of mine injured himself playing football; haemotoma and pulled a lot of his thigh muscles. Go to the doctor; he didn't, and he was in crutches for a week. I'd bet few here are medically trained, or qualified to comment. Get yourself down to your GP and get it looked at by a professional.
