Tennis elbow - March 21st 2013, 08:32 AM

Okay I seem to have 'Tennis Elbow' I literally cannot move my left arm at all it hurts to type, it hurts to move it, and it feels heavy. Is there anything I can do other than rest it to help it get better ? Mum is going to ultra sound it for me at some point. Would a bandage do any good ?

Well, first, I'm not really sure what an ultra sound is going to do for you. If you already know it's tennis elbow then there isn't much more an ultra sound can do and I don't think they even usually do that?

Anyways. Ice and anti inflammatories like ibuprofen. I hate to tell you that it can be caused from over use of a computer, so you should probably take a break from your laptop for a while but I know you're not going to. The other thing that's supposed to help is a cortisol injection but you have to go to a doctor for that.

Normally, resting it for a few days will do the trick. If it continues, you'd be best to see your GP. Rarely, a GP will carry out an ultra sound scan or an MRI scan because this can show whether the pain that you are having, may be caused by nerve damage but after a few days rest, you should be fine and dandy again. In the meantime you can take pain killers if you struggle with any pain.
