Delayed Reaction Tunnel Injury
Three to four days after failed attempt at a belly to back transition on Feb 26, 2018 (feet under) (video attached - incident at 47 second mark - 1/2 speed may help view incident) no pain at all initially (kept flying as if nothing happened) then 3-4 days later the left shoulder began to have minor discomfort - just enough to let me know something was up. A day or two later and since then left shoulder is hurting quite badly when arm is moved to the point where any movement is very painful.
Is it common for pain from a tunnel injury to happen - days later?
I don't think its "common". It probably will always depend on the kind of injury and on the person itself. Sometimes my knees or elbows hurt directly when hitting the wall on 4way training, sometimes they start hurting a day or two later.
That being said, I never had a real "injury" from the tunnel, only the usual stuff, bruses, aching, ...
You hurt something, the muscles round it contract to protect it and you start using your body differently. Then that hurts and you start using another part of your body differently - builds up into a worsening spiral of problems. Painkillers mask the problem which sometimes helps you get proper movement back but not always. A good sports physio can look at what you are doing and tell you what you need to do to correct it. Then all you need to do is stick with what the sports physio tells you to do and eventually you'll either resolve the root cause of the problem, or identify that it's a problem needing surgery.
