My pm doc gave me 2 injections in my elbow last week and it does seem to have helped a bit.He thinks it's possible Bursitus.I am not sure but at least I got some relief and can do a bit more around the house.Any time I made a circular motion, like dusting,drying dishes,or wiping things,my forearm had pain shooting through it.At times it (pain) shot all the way up to my neck.I guess the pain is coming from my arm going to neck and not reversed.?We'll see how well these shots do.My neck still hurts like the blazes but can't seem to get the Doc to look at it seriously...thinking of switching to an old Doc I had.He knows my case.Anyway,thanks for letting me blow off some tension.I have so many things going on at home its driving me nuts & I know it's not good for my pain.Thanks again and gentle hugs~~ :SS >:D< :< :&

  • I've had injections to my "tennis elbow " also twice a few years ago and found they helped. I notice if I over reach for something beyond just straightening the arm causes another flare up. Now since I'm on pain meds for my back I'm not noticing the pain of my elbow as much but I still use the heating pad at times. I hope the shots worked for you. Are you seeing a pain management Dr? I had to find another PM Dr. for a 2nd opinion about the injections he was doing. The new PM Dr. found I had facet joint problems the other Doctor overlooked. I hope you're Dr. is listening to you about you neck pain. Take care. Charry
