I was doing curles while peddling on on a stationary bike, I was only using 10 pound weights, when lifting te weights up I heard a loud pop and now my arm hurts from my wrist through my bi crept if I move it the wrong way or pick something up , if I twist my ristward it hurts all the way through my arm. After the pop a couple of days later I had a big bruise ruby red on my under arm just before my elbow about 6 inches long and 4 inches wide. Did I grupture a mussel or snap a tendon. How do I find out what I did?

I had a small lump form on my wrist with very sharp pain. After maybe 15 minutes, the pain started to get better slowly. I then noticed a bruise had formed around that spot. As far as I know, I did not hit it on anything. Is this something to be concerned about?
