Yeah, tore then tendon from the shoulder! The pain was like a dull ache in the upper/outer part of my bicep before it tore. Best bet is to just get it looked at! can't be too safe. Trust me from experience, tearing a bicep is not fun


Hmmm. If it's getting looked at it's gonna be in works time! Cheers for the info!

The long head of biceps tears quite commonly off its attachment to the scapula, just above the glenohumeral joint. If you have done that, it will hurt in your shoulder and the biceps will be a funny shape as Terry has mentioned, something we call the 'popeye' sign. If yours is sore when you contract the biceps but not a funny shape or bruised it's more likely to be some inflammation of the tendon without frank rupture, or possibly a pull or partial tear of the muscle belly itself.

Without having a look at you it is difficult to say so go and see a doctor.

This may be of some use http://www.shoulderdoc.co.uk/article.asp?article=722&secti...

Thanks. I take it this is not that serious and just requires rest?

Is it poss to have this same thing at the elbow end? I've had nothing but problems for months if I turn my hands outwards, I can't do any curls (!) or pulls with hands in that position. But pressings fine or if hands are facing inwards. I did some pullups stupidly while cold and felt a pop.

This has just made me fell sick reading (or that might have been the dodgy bbq Ive just had)it and seems to identify mine exactly. I bloody hope not. Sorry to jump on your thread buddy, worth a read though, very informative.

Is the bicep in question a lot shorter than your other one? Is there a noticeably large gap between your elbow and the start of your bicep? If so it could well be. There was a video of a member on here's bicep visibly snapping when doing a deadlift. If you watch that (if someone is kind enough to find it) it'll become obvious.

:edit: this pic highlights a distal tear.

Mines not to that extent tbh, hoping I've got a strain or minor tear at worst. Its been on going for about 3 months though need to get it sorted.
