Kurt Angle and Joe Rogan had an interesting conversation at The Joe Rogan Experience. The long and successful career of Angle has been marked by a number of challenges. He suffered a great deal of pain as a result of the injuries that he sustained.
It is important to note, however, that this great wrestler never gave up. His goal was to make a full recovery and he was always fighting for that. It was during the interview with Joe Rogan that he talked about his medical condition, and what he feels is his most pressing issue at the moment.
“I always had problems with my motor skills in my hands. I broke my neck four more times in the WWE and it got worse and worse. I mean, I have nerve damage in my neck. I lost three inches in both arms and they atrophied because my neck was just so messed up.
I’ve had five surgeries and none of them have really worked. I’m going to end up having to have fusion which will be down the line."- he said, as quoted by pwmania.com!
Kurt Angle and his health problems
It is obvious that Kurt Angle has a lot of health issues at the moment.
A career like that requires that you do your best, and then you have to deal with the consequences that follow as a result. However, Angle is such a person that he always gave his best. The result of this is health problems. “I can’t feel my pinky fingers.
I have a lot of atrophy in my arms. I don’t have a lot of strength. I can curl for like 20 pound dumbbells. When I do triceps, I can only push the weights about 60 pounds forward. I don’t have a lot of strength in my upper body.
If you look at my chest right here, you’ll see there’s a dip here. That’s from my neck. That’s a nerve that died and no longer have this muscle on my chest. I have a complete ripple through my chest. It will never come back and I’m afraid it’s gonna happen again, so I’m going to have to have a fusion sooner than later because if I don’t, the damage is gonna get worse and worse and then my arms are gonna end up shrinking to nothing.
I have nerves that are being pinched and they’re not being able to flow down my arms so my fingers are freezing cold. They’re always cold. I don’t have any circulation. This is all extra skin because of what the size my arms used to be.
I’m barely making it right now. My arms are 15 inches now. They used to be 18 or 19 inches. I’m struggling right now”.
