I just dislocated my knee on thursday. From what I have read, it is supposed to be a serious injury, but it doesn't feel that bad. Its a little swollen, but I can move it.
Anyone have a similar experience?
Sounds like part of your joint pain is that you still are fighting the sub to much instead of learing not to get in the bad position.

But if you are fighting arms bars by resisting at a 45 degree angles, then trying to stack your way out of it frequently, you are definitely having the problem I described. The arm bar doesn't have to be all the way on for the joint to be under a lot of stress. By your description, I'd say it definitely is.
The other stuff will help, but hips will always be stronger than elbow joints.
Um, yeah, same as they all said heh. I take Chron/Gluco, ibuprofen and fish oil (costco, mine doens't re-fish smell btw) every day. The Chondroiton/Glucosamine is 2 per day, I take one with breakfast one with dinner (just before I train), fish oil 2 per meal, Ibuprofen I vary depending on joint pain but at least 2. I also take a couple thousand mg of C per day. Then yeah, ice if the joints got a good workout or feel rubber heh.
Great point above by Jhemsley, you don't have to have the elbow hyper-extended to be putting serious stress on it. If you're resisting fully at any angle, that's where the pressure is.
I agree 100%, I am a BJJ noob only 3 mos of training. I will try to concentrate more on not getting in a bad position, sound advice I will be workin on it.
