worst DOMS in world - Arms wont bend past 90 degrees

Had a 3 month lay off due to operation and went back to gym other day - really pushed it and had a good session - when I left my arms, chest and back were all shaking. woke up next day very sore and woke up the day after that even sorer and this morning - bloody hell! havent been able to striaghten arms for last couple days - got stuck on toilet this morning and had toget my gf to wipe for me as couldnt do it myself. I am not joking I have seroius soreness - I can cope with the chest and back soreness but my arms all along from my forearm right into by upper arm feel like they have been attacked with a blunt spoon.
 
I think I have gone to far with it and regret pushing myself as much as I did now....please someone tell me you have done this and it got better later in the week?!?!?

    My Mrs trained with me for a year and the fist time we trained arms I put her through some drop sets well knowing the out come PMSL-she said 3 days later "When I can straighten my arms I'm going to punch you right in the face"

    I'll cross that bridge after i've burned it.

    Mate, I done exactly the same a month ago. The second day was so bad I could barely get out of bed. My own fault, I got over zeleous at my first gym session back after 3 months off.

    There isnt really much you can do, except for rest a couple more days. Dont bother going the gym now, however make sure you keep up your diet and protiein intake. Have a good intake of cod liver oil I found that helped, as well as a higher dosage of L-Glutamine.

    You should be back to normal in 2-3 days time. Then you can hit it again and should be fine next time. its only DOMS :-)

    Mate hang on to your Mrs - given that you have self inflicted DOMs and she was happy to wipe your starfish for you i'm pretty sure she'll still be around when you really need assistance later in life.

    she wasnt happy to do it and there was a lot of complaing esp as it was quite a wet dump but she did it anyway - bit annoying as she kept favouring the left hand side of the arse and not the right i tried to hold a cheek open on tjhat sidee for her but couldnt get a good grasp

    This happened to a friend of mine a few months ago when he trained with me... I thought he was messing about the next day when I seen him and his funny arm possition...haha I remember actually putting a tray on his arms & telling him to get some drinks in....

    I do it because I can,
    I can because I want to,
    I want to because you said I couldn't

    Drink some bicarb of soda mate - just a teaspoon in a pint of water unless you want to froth up like a toxic soup.

    Works well for me.

    Well, there is 'nice' DOMS and there is DOMs which is absolute agony. I feel the OP is suffering from the latter.

    However the 'nice' DOMS does actually feel rather epic :)

    I had this myself real real bad.. I had 6 months off.. went gym trained biceps real light.. week later thought they would be ok.. pushed myself to the limit.. I couldn't straighten my arm for 5 days.... It was the most painful 5 days of my life! Seriously !!

    Try some deep heat and massage the joint & take some pain killers.. not much else you can do.. maybe try hot bath .. I wouldn't wanna experience that again! No way..

    never heard of this before, is this true or are you just trying to give him the raging sh1ts so his gf can show her dedication ?

    nice to hear of someone putting some effort into their routine for a change.
    good for you!
    i find that (decent) vodka helps. it doesnt cure it, but makes you forget for a while.
