Forearm Numbness

I was throwing a bullpen session today and the weirdest thing happened, right when I released the ball, my forearm, thumb, pointer, and middle finger went numb. It didnt hurt, It just felt really wierd. It went away after about 7 seconds. I stopped pitching right away. What was it and should I be worried?

I’m no doctor but you could’ve pinched a nerve and threw the ball improperly. If you feel numbness again, it could be a sign of dead arm syndrome.

Enjoy Tommy J surgery kid.

Torn UCLs usually result in searing/burning pain in the forearm, not numbness. But nice Internet diagnosis.


Go to a physician.

Doctor right away, better safe than sorry.
