for those of you whove read my other posts on tendonitis i know its starting to get annoying. im sorry.
by now ive had tendonitis in my shoulder/elbows for six months and i havent been to the gym since. ive tried acupuncture, patches, creams, pills, etc. nothing worked.
i finally got approval for ONE measly session yesterday for physical therapy. the therapist told me i have to gradually work back up. he says i dont have chronic tendonitis because i have full range of motion. so he just gave me some different ways to do some workouts. i did it for a very short time using one pounders. today i wake up and my elbows and shoulders are in pain. i cant do any shoulder workouts without sensing pain in the upper front shoulder joints. and my elbows hurt when i fully bend them.
what now? i seriously have lost all hope. i am beginning to regret ever starting to work out. im going back to the doctor soon but hes really stupid. the last time i went he tried to give me ibuprofen. i told him that **** doesnt work. he asked me what i wanted. well... i want my tendonitis gone. thats why i came to you. what do they pay you for? anyway i just asked for physical therapy. now that physical therapy didnt work i have to go back to the doctor. and he will probably ask me what i want again. so what do i ask for now? massage therapy? ultrasound therapy? plz help me. im desperate.
ps: when i tell this to my friends all they say is "just rest man." im like "ive been doing that for six months. look where its got me." im in worse condition than when i stopped working out. i regret stopping. it didnt hurt anywhere near this much when i was lifting. maybe i need to ask for mri or something.
