Has anyone had a tennis elbow (elbow tendinitis) before?

If so, how long did it last, and what did you do to remedy the pain? Thanks.

    Yes. I’m in the last stages of recovery right now. About five weeks ago I strained it badly while gardening. I did a lot of surfing on line and found several sites that show in detail how to do physical therapy for "ulnar neuropathy" – elbow pain. I have done the exercises using simple things like rubberbands instead of expensive therapy bands and cans of soup instead of half pound weights. The ache continued from wrist to shoulder all that time, but each day I could bend, twist and grip a little better. And I know five weeks of physical therapy would have cost thousands of dollars, not to mention the doctor visits. I’m proud to say that I took care of myself, but remember. Nothing is certain and only an expert evaluation by a doctor can tell you if it’s only muscle strain or a tear. As for the current pain, ice, ibuprofen and thinking about something else is all I found would work. I sure hopes this helps you. Good luck!

    My horse back riding instructor had this, and she had to get a splint-type of thing on it. She said it last’s about 7 months I think. I don’t really know anything else about it though, sorry. 🙂

    My mum had it for a few years , she sometimes gets pain. She got something called a cortozone injection (sorry if spelled wrong) after that she has been so much better.

    The lady that works with me was a tennis player her whole life. She had this elbow pain for years and years, and nothing seemed to cure it. After 100s of cortisone shots, she finally went to an elbow specialist who suggested a simple outpatient surgery to take care of it. After a week or so she was completely fine, and with no pain at all. I believe her condition was called epicondo..somthing, and it was a simple tendon out of place.

    I have had mine for 19 months I am now waiting to be referred to have an operation to fix it. I did find that the steroid injections although uncomfortable did work very well but you can only have three in a year then a year off
