how do you know if you tore it? it hurts near my elbo on the medial side. it almost hurts down past my elbo, about an inch past my elbo. how long should i wait for pain to stop before i can assume its torn or would i know already if it was torn b/c i would be hurting like a mofo? is there any tendons there i could have torn? i think it feels like its probably in the brachialis area where its is most tender. can you tear that?
