I was satisfied with the final of the men's 100 back! Someone might have done a partial taper in that heat. Only Phelps can get away with a partial taper at Olympic Trials or Lochte four years ago. Glad you found a place to swim during trials. Great Commentary with some swimming dish.
My case likely doesn't has much chance of being the same as yours, but in the remote chance it is: I have had similar forearm/hand aching with some numbness in fingers and outside of hand (though my elbow wasn't a prominent area of discomfort). It turns out my shoulder is the source of it all. What has certainly helped me some is teres major and minor myofascial relase.
I am starting to get really worried about my elbow with some numbness in my right forearm. This morning was very painful and the pain really did not go away the whole workout.
Do you need to see a more sports-specific specialist? I hope you can get this rectified.
I am heading to Olympic Trials tomorrow so won't be posting until next week.
Numbness not good. Front (median nerve) or back (ulnar nerve)? Hope you feel better. I have a bro in Dallas that's a hand surgeon (hope you don't need one but you might).
No Frisco meet?
Is the diagnosis swimmer's (aka golfer's) elbow?
