I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Could you give me some guidance on what part of the arm or bicep would be responsible for creating leverage or torque in a curling motion? It has been years and feel that something that could naturally be healed would've happened by now.
Ok....are there any muscles that connect from the bicep to forearm that may be involved because based on how I feel, it seems that something in between the bicep and forearm is giving out. Let me know what you think. Thanks
It has nothing to do with the shoulder I am sure of. It is something between bicep and forearm.

I injured both arms about 5 years ago. Both healed and I started working out again. At this point, I noticed my left arm just wasn't feeling the same while my right felt as if nothing ever happened. So there was never an overcompensation on either arm. I do not have any deformity in my bicep, it looks normal. It just seems as if my bicep is giving out on me before the actual muscle is reaching failure. It as if the other muscle which creates the Torque, leverage, or cranking power(whatever creates the power to curl upwards) is giving out before the bicep can get a full work out. Does this sound like anything you've seen in the past or does this change your observation. I went to a sports medicine doctor when this first happened and he did some range of motion exercises and what not and said it was probably just some minor stabilizer muscles that tore and they would heal. Maybe I was misdiagnosed. Hope this helps clarify my situation. Also just to be more clear, at the beginning of my workout both arms are equally as strong, but the left one rapidly decreases while the right arms keeps charging.
When you describe early fatigue of a muscle, that makes me think of a neurological condition, and/or a tear. In my experience, with patients that I have seen, when there is a tear, there are two main symptoms. Usually, they can recall a specific event or time that the injury occurred when they felt a pop or click in the arm. One of the symptoms is inability to perform tasks that were usually not a problem to perform, a feeling of instability in the arm, and early fatigue. The most common symptom of a muscle tear is a sudden and sharp pain in the upper arm, This is accompanied by cramping (or what you describe as fatigue) of the arm or "early failure." The cramping or fatigue can even occur after usage that is otherwise tolerable in a healthy individual. Sometimes, when the muscle detaches itself from the bones, you can hear an audible "pop!" There is also muscle pain and tenderness at the shoulders and elbows. Most of the time in the presence of a biceps tendon tear, there is usually difficulty in turning the palm up or down. Due to the tearing of the biceps muscle, do you have this symptom? a bulge or a bruise may appear on the upper arm, but, in your case is not present. I would also expect that you may have a tear in your forearm muscles too. The forearms also help with biceps curls. If there is a muscle torn in your forearm, you may have been advised that it will heal over time by your doctor, as you stated, but since you seem to still be having significant difficulty with it, I would get a second opinion. It is always necessary to observe the injury at first, take anti-inflammatories, and do exercises and modify your activities. If there is still significant functional difficulty, an imaging study is NECESSARY!
Can you give me a referral to with a prescription for an MRI or is that something I need to go do on my own.
