Our expert says:
It could be an acute problem, which would be caused by lifting a weight that's just too heavy for you right now. Remember that the bones are still supporting the weight, because the muscle is attached to either end of it and runs along its surface. So if you lift too heavy, you can cause this problem.
So if that's the case (that it's just happens while lifting), then it's likely because you're lifting too heavy, and just need to back off by 20% and build up.
If it's a chronic problem, then you should perhaps look at reducing the frequency of training, so that you have more rest in the week. That means reducing the overall volume of training - three days a week, instead of four, for example, would work.
