  1. But what about contractions I feel when I move my arm…..my thumb is getting cringed and it is horrifying…..

  2. I’m 12 and this is happening to me. I don’t know exactly what I have but I think it might be something similar to this. I started feeling the sharp pain on the back of my hand when I bent my wrist or made a fist with my hand. I also felt a sharp pain in my arm when I bent my elbow. I hope this video helps.

  3. I fell 2 stories off roof landed on elbow on concrete snapped my humerus in half damaged radial nerve. Could barely move fingers. 5 months later I’ve gained about 75% of my strength back and 95% movement. I still continue to heal more weekly. My lower arm down to my fingers is still a numb though I have complete control.
