Sergio Oliva Jr. experiences some nasty nerve pain.
2020 has been a trying time for everyone. The global health crisis has caused a terrible amount of misfortune for many people around the world. It has caused the cancellation of many events and even caused the closure of many businesses as forced shutdowns have been implemented.
It’s safe to say that 2020 is doing no one any favors. That appears to be the case for IFBB Pro bodybuilder Sergio Oliva Jr.
The son of the legendary Cuban bodybuilder of the Golden Era, Sergio Oliva Jr. is facing some recent adversity. The bodybuilder was recently hospitalized due to suffering from nerve pain. According to Oliva, it was the worst pain he has ever experienced.
Looking to inform his fans and followers about his current condition, Sergio Oliva Jr. posted the below to his Instagram page.
“2020 is getting on my nerves… literally! Please donate to my GoFundMe… jk but for real worse pain I’ve ever been in in my life. I’ve had my appendix explode and hernia surgery in my life and nothing compared to nerve pain. And to make it sting even more I did it just sleeping on my arm the wrong way. No lesson to learn or cool story to tell just my shit luck that ALWAYS has to test me.
I always love a good secret comeback so only reason I’m even posting this is because people have messaged me noticing my disappearance from social media and it means a lot and I don’t want to leave any hanging.
Only thing that matters is nothing is broken or torn and I don’t need surgery. So for now I’m gonna do my best @thedorianyates and @antoinev87 training with a sling on and do what I gotta do🤕”
