Hi, I have had sore elbows and arms for 1 and 1/2 years now.
I have done physio, massage, ultra sound, acupuncture with electric current, osteopath, topical creams, ice, exercise, worn braces.
I also take Vioxx everyday. the doctor cahnged from Celebrex to Vioxx. I had cortisone shots last winter but they wore off.
The pain is getting worse, not better with time and my arms feel stiff and weak all the time.
I am 49 and want to feel better and be able to participate in more things. I am naturally very flexible in my arms (double jointed) but my loose ligaments seem tight now. Could there be any other solutions that you could suggest? Could this condition be anything other than tendonitis? The elbow bone is very sore to the touch but the weakness and soreness goes all the way down my arms .
The right arm is the lateral bone and the left arm is the medial bone.
I don’t know what to do anymore.
I don’t know if this is related but my knees have been sore in the last couple of weeks too.
Stairs hurt sometime and they get tired if I stand for a long time. If I twisted my knee how long should that take to heal? Hope you can help.
Thanks, Mary Ellen
