unilateral swelling of the left arm after exercise
My GF experinced unilateral swelling of the left arm after lifting weights (upper body workout). She was lifting substantial weight but not max. No symptoms other than swelling, some patchy bruising and stiftness. Any idea of what is happening?

Hello!

I would suggest you to use icepacks for her arm and also tell her to take a break from lifting of any weights till couple of days. Tell her to take some pain killers.

If the pain continues she needs to go for an X-ray to diagnose any dislocation in the shoulder joint.

Take care!
