My right arm keeps twitching between my bicep and tricep. What is the likely cause and treatment? 

Fasciculation

Knee_pain
Most of the time a muscle "twitch" (or fasciculation) is totally normal. However, it can be a sign of nerve disease (lower motor neuron disease). If there was a nerve disease, I would also expect to have some evidence of sensory or strength loss on exam (and in the patient's list of complaints). Additionally I would expect reflexes to be reduced or absent. Without these, it is probably normal.

Calcific tendinitis measuring 4x1 mm involving the olecranon insertional fibers of tricep tendons. Will this heal? Risks? Advice? Treatment? Thanks

Varies

Tendon
When a tendon has chronic or multiple of episodes of inflammation and/or injury, calcifications can develop. At 4x1 mm they are extremely small. They don't really heal. One way to look it is they are really just a symptom of of chronically irritated tendon. Treatment involves addressing the cause of the tendinitis.

Diagnosed, triceps tendon has pulled a bit of bone off the olecranon process. Where do I go from here treatment wise?

Orthopedic surgeon

Bones
Triceps tendon ruptures or avulsions from the olecranon process require operative repair to restore elbow flexion strength. The repair is more successful if done acutely.

Dr. James L. Chen answered:

How can you heal a torn tricep muscle?

Depends where torn

Muscle
A torn triceps at the attachment of the muscle to bone (the tendon) needs to be re-attached through surgery. If the muscle is torn in the body of the muscle then surgery is less successful. Typically the torn muscle will scar down and after it heals you can do rehab and physical therapy. There is nothing you can do to accelerate the healing other than rest the muscle and do not overuse it.

What does a torn tricep muscle look like. I fell and thought I had a huge hematoma. Now it looks like I have an indentation

You may have one

Muscle
While you may not have such a tear , if there is any question you should check it out I wouldn't worry as much about the bruising but the indentation concerns me

Dr. Jay Rosenfeld answered:

What is wrong with my triceps muscle? The middle is ok but ends are aching.

Tendonitis

Extremity-joint-elbow
When people have problems with their muscles, the trouble spots are usually where the muscle turns into tendon and inserts on the bone. The triceps originates from the shoulder and the humerus bone and inserts on the ulnar bone in the elbow. I suspect that you may have strained the muscle at those two points. Sometimes, problems with the shoulder itself can cause pain in the triceps. See a doc.

Dr. Brian Kaufman answered:

How can one build bicep and tricep muscles with dumbells?

Alternating motions

Muscle
Always work biceps and triceps on the same day alternating. I would recommend including the shoulder since this links to the arms. Do triceps extensions and dumbbell curls. Make sure to do a thorough warm up so you don't hurt your rotator cuff or other joints.

Is biceps workout and triceps workout build muscles? plz suggest i'm doing this but i don't want muscles only want to reduce arm fat..!!

Good for you!

Bicycle_safety
Exercise can help you burn calories (lose fat), keep you flexible, and maintain strength. You can exercise without building up Popeye kind of muscles. It's a matter of how much you do. Congrats on making healthy changes!

Why don't I feel muscle contraction in my triceps and biceps when I bench press and only in chest?

Sounds like it

Muscle
I'd have to see your form for sure, but it sure sounds like you're using improper form. You may not feel your chest a lot at lockout, but you should feel it when the bar is close to your chest.
