I've sought physical therapy, worn an assortment of braces, "rested", and I've been dealing with this painful problem for two years. I've been diagnosed with arthritis, carpal tunnel, but only to have the diagnosis considered false with my last appointment with a specialist. I am at the end of my rope. My pain is sharp, achy and constant. What is truly wrong with me? How can it stop? I'm a 19-year-old college student just trying to get an education for a future career. Please help me.
Have they done an MRI of your wrists and elbows to rule out Rheumatoid Arthritis? I was told by a doctor that I had tendonitis in my elbows which I could not straighten out, along with wrist pain. I was referred to a hand specialist who sent me for an MRI, and bloodwork. He then referred me to an Rheumatologist who diagnosed me with Rheumatoid Arthritis not tendonitis. Have you been to a Rheumatologist?
I've had cortisone injections in both elbows numerous times and they work fairly well. But the best thing I've found is acupressure. If you press at the end of the crease in the web between your thumb and index finger and hold it for a minute or so. Press as hard as you can stand it. then do the other hand and your elbows will feel better in no time.
There is a good book about this called " Acupressure's Potent Points" by Michael Reed Gach. See if your local Library has it.
