Default Possible tricep tear pls help! - 06-13-2015, 07:48 PM

So I Used to lift about 1 year ago, but I Had to quit do to my job ,14 hr shifts everyday for almost a year .

So im starting from zero again ,but i have a problem with my right arm tricep.

The medial head has like a big lump ive had this since i can remember and i dont recall an ''ouch''moment when i was training to tell you if this happened during a workout.The muscle is really tense/strained , when i touch it ,it doesnt really hurt but it feels unnatural and a little discomfort in the elbow and sometimes it hurts a little in my elbow not on the lump when i do overhead tricep extensions, I was thinking this might be a minor tear or something like that? Since i dont have much muscle right now the medial head literally looks bigger than the long head , What could this be?

Also that same arm is an inch smaller than my left arm.

You may be right. The only real way to tell is to get an MRI. I had a bicep tendon completely pull loose and the ER said it wasn't a complete tear based on x-rays and the fact that I could still move my arm. They were wrong. The MRI showed complete separation and surgery was required if I didn't want to lose about 1/2 of my potential strength. Some people never get it fixed, but I could not live like that.
