I noticed a lot of elbow pain threads but I haven’t seen exactly what I am looking for.
I’ve been pitching for 3 years, once in high school. Heading into College now.
This is basically my first arm injury that lasted more than a week. I believe I injuried my arm exactly 2 weeks ago. Anyways, my pain is basically where the UCL is. I haven’t thrown as if I wanted to pitch since (For some reason, I have a fear to throw at the moment) the injury occured.
I feel no pain doing every day things but every now and then I would press where the upper arm bone connects to the ulna. It’s very little pain. I also sometimes have my arm in a 90 degree angle, hand outward then move forward to feel if the pain has decreased.
It has decreased but what I’m ultimately trying to get at is how many weeks would it take for an injury like this take to heal. And if you’ve had a similar injury.
I mean I could go to the doctor but I don’t feel it is neccesary since I’m probably going to miss tryouts for College this year and it doesn’t hurt too bad.
Note: I’m left handed and I don’t throw sliders very often but it occured when I threw quite a few curveballs and two sliders with a mix of
fast balls. The pain happened after throwing a slider. I may’ve turned my wrist early but in the past, I’ve never injuried my arm throwing one.
