    i doubt its tennis elbow, i have a minor case of that but its not anything like what your describing. id stay away from using it else youll strain it even more. you might have ripped a tendon or strained a muscle. keep taking your pills and using the gel (bengay helps a lot w/ muscle relaxation and pain). listen to your doctor and do everything that he says

    Get your arm x-ray’d. My wife broke her wrist and the stupid doctors didn’t x-ray it because they misdiagnosed her with something else. Years passed, the bone finally died and it’s taken 3 surgeries to get it healed…

    what makes you think we know more than the doctor who saw your arm?
