Sounds like inflammation to me. Maybe a tendon involved and that's "popping" as it moves over something that interferes because it or something next to it is swollen? My experience with that sort of thing boils down to resting and for longer than I want/think I need to. Have you tried NSAIDs?

I wear contacts climbing all the time and it's fine. I carry a little bottle of eye drops in case I ever get a bunch of chalk in there but I've never needed it.

I've messed up my fingers a few times, but fortunately not seriously. I use the taping technique in this sorta crappy video to this day on my weaker fingers even though I'm healed up. It was immediately apparent that it was helping out when I first started using it.

If something lasting more than a day or two involves a nerve you should get it looked at rather than waiting it out. In certain circumstances you risk long-term damage if there's something impinging on a nerve. Not very likely but not worth what you risk. At least call your doctor and describe your symptoms. Have you tried the usual stuff to address inflamation? It could just be something is swollen and pushing on a nerve a little.

My only elbow injury was a tendon thing playing hockey with no nerve involvement. All I can say is that it's a complicated joint with a lot of stuff going through a small space, so things can take a long time to heal and be hard to diagnose. Good luck!

I don't know what the gyms in Germany are like, but in the DC area in the US membership rates run from about $65 a month to $89 depending on location. Besides the lead, top route, and bouldering climbing they include workout facilities like a regular fitness gym, so it doesn't seem bad to me. Cheaper Expensive
