        Short Version:

        I have been unable to find much information on treating forearm splints and am in pain despite trying many different things. Please help.

        Long Version:
        I have been suffering from them for almost a year now and no matter how long I rest, they come back immediately upon beginning my handstand training. I have spent hours doing FRC type flexibility work, follow an anti-inflammatory diet (while supplementing DHA, Glycine, & Turmeric) and still this pain persists. 

        Shin splint type feeling in upper outside of forearm (ulnar side) 
        Very painful to touch
        Electrical/nerve type pain in bottom position of OHP
        Pain in forearm at top of pull-up
        Pain is worst when releasing out of handstand/planche training
        What I have tried:
        Banded distraction through wrist stretches
        Self-massaging area
        Diet changes
        Heat+Ice+Anti-Inflammatories+ Compression bands
        Various exercises
        Next steps:
        See advice/things you guys have for me to try
        See a graston technique practitioner (heard it is better than ART for this type of stuff) in another week or so if nothing changes based on your advice
