blocking high kicks + forearm pain

about 4 weeks ago i was sparring kickboxing and my forearms were taking a beating from blocking headkicks, my left forearm in particular.
the pain subsided in the weeks to follow, but i find that whenever i roll in BJJ, there is a mild recurring pain whenever i do collar chokes.

It feels like the forearm pain is coming from the bone, nothing from the muscle/joints.
When im not doing anything, the pain is non-existant-if not, mild-at the worst.

i can still perform general everyday things with my arms, but its just that the pain only comes back whenever i roll.

What should i do? should i bother getting an xray? or should i just ice it consistently?

any word on this is appreciated, thanks

Well when Gonzaga HK'd Randy he blocked it with his arm and it broke, perhaps its just a hairline fracture but better safe than sorry.

Deep muscle bruise or forearm splints maybe?

I'd just take a few days off from training, maybe even a week, keep icing it if it bothers you, and if it's not better by the time you go back to training then I'd see a doctor.

It'll be bone bruising. If you have skinny arms or the guy has awesome kicks, block it with both arms. My forearm bones are like that at the minute from punching stuff loads. :/

If it's a genuine concern then deffinately get an xray. Better to be safe than sorry. Except in my country where A&E has a 2 hour wait before you get seen to.

Aurelius67 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I have gotten bad bone bruising and it went on for about 3 to 5 months. It wouldn't be bad unless i hit it hard or did something strenuous with it. All it was when i got is was i posted with my arm then the guy lost his footing and fell on my arm. I thought it was broken at first but then i realized it wasn't but i had a deep bone bruise for a long time. A bone bruise is when you're bone marrow(Sp?) is bruised. it takes a while to heal. Icing really helps and my dr didn't really do anything for me but tell me to quit football and fighting for a while. both of which i didnt do so maybe thats why it took so long :P

well you need your hand against your head when you block it...

but really the main thing to do is to avoid it, theres really no good way to block a high kick, just avoid it is the best way to deal with it. look at randy his block against gonzaga was a decent technical block and it still broke his arm

you need to move so that you dont have to keep blocking head kicks, throw straight rights and he will throw less kicks guaranteed. Of course your gonna be bruised to the bone, hand on head to block or not. I know that pain though,used to spar like that, then have to go to work the next day just hurtin
