Hope someone can help. I am getting more depressed by the day !
When rolling got kimura-ed. Tried to tap but missed as my training partner moved position. End result shoulder injury (did not seem too bad). Trained next few weeks, then ended up with knot in my trap. Index finger went numb.
Been to physio last few weeks, knot gone, but finger still numb. I can train with weights no problem, all exercises, but when I attempt to bench press cannot even press an empty bar - not really any pain just no strength (no way that my muscles have shrank and weakened to this degree) Can a knot pressing on nerve cause this ? My questions are:
Any views on what this is ?
How long to heal ? (cannot go to my usual physio at the moment - cannot get time off work)
Are my weights aggravating this (I am not strong, so do not use really heavy weights - I squat with bar on trap area - but no pain at all) ?
Could this last for months ? ( I have not been able to roll for four weeks now)
Will ice help to heal ?
