Hello :)

To be honest, there isn’t much you can do. It will hurt for a couple of days (mine lasted a week, urgh) and eventually go away. I think you can take pain killers but am not too sure. I just made sure nothing came into contact with that arm :) I couldn’t even sleep on my arm or stretch it was that painful :(

Just look after it and be careful with it, our p.e teacher made us do p.e on the same day :)

P.S You could try an ice pack? Or a cold compress? Just and idea :)
