    bulging sore muscle in forearm
    no1omi posted:
    My friend has a muscle in her forearm that is bulging and sore. She has been doing lifting at work and home but not weight lifting. Is there such a thing as a "blown muscle"? Trying to figure out if this is something to be conscerned about. Would love to get feedback. Thanks in advance.
    David Berkoff, MD responded:
    You can absolutely tear a muscle just about anywhere in the body. If se has a muscle that looks different than the other side she needs to have it evaluated. Muscles can also swell from new levels of activity and this swelling can also cause problems. Have your friend get this checked out.
