Answer:

It sounds as though you are still experiencing symptoms even with taking time off and using heat, cold, and anti-inflammatories without effect, if I read your question correctly. 

Does the strange feeling include pain or numbness and tingling? How much are these symptoms impacting your daily routine? If you are unable to continue with your weightlifting workout with all the above treatments, I would recommend a visit to your local sports medicine health care provider for a thorough evaluation and institution of a treatment plan to get you back to the activities you enjoy. Good Luck!
