    Forearm/elbow injury

    My right elbow, upper forearm has been hurting for almost 2 weeks now and I can't figure out how I injured it.

    I was on the UD2 diet, then took a week off from lifting and that's when the injury happened. I don't know if it was the way I slept, with my girl's head underneath my arm, or the way I type on the computer, with my hand resting on the edge of the desk.

    I finally made an appointment with the doctor tomorrow to see what's going on.

    But I would like to know if anyone else had an elbow problem like this?

    I'm not sure if it's the bone, tendon, or ligament.

    It hurts when I stretch my arm out and squeeze it. It feels like someone is sticking me with an icepick.

    To clarify, the area that hurts is not the elbow itself, but actually the other side of the elbow, the inner arm, where the two bones meet.

    I've had it before. Is it the tendon on the top outside of your forearm?

    It could be from your computer. Your doctor visit will be a wasted trip.

    Try aleve, ice, stretching your wrist, and self message up and down that tendon that is inflamed. do this with your other thumb and some icy-hot.

    good luck, let me know what the doctor says.

    I never thought much of icy hot but it totally worked for my elbow + the other things ryan mentioned. I would try these before a visit and maybe one of the tennis elbow bands.
    Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold

    I tried the elbow bands, they did not work in my case.
    I'm not sure the icy hot really works but it does make it feel better and will help your thumb glide over the tendon with out friction, you can really use any oil.
    DMSO helps alot too, but you will smell like a clove of garlic in sour
    I visit to a good chiro might be worth the trip if they will do ultrasound on it.
