    Do I have a torn tendon?
    sho69607 posted:
    A couple of weeks ago I was playing football when it jammed my finger. At urgent care they told me it was just a bad sprain and to watch for further injury. To make things worse, I continued to participate in vigorous activity and worked out my arms two days in a row. Now I realize how bad the pain is. When ever I throw something, after a few minutes I get throbbing pain in my bicep and inner elbow pit. Are these two separate injuries or has it spread? Also I notice random tingling in my hand every once in a while. Please help. Thank you.
