Can sulphites in wine intensify the pain in my tennis elbow?

I have tennis elbow and it is very painful. I usually take a glass of white wine every day but lately I have stopped thinking that the sulphites in the wine are making the pain greater. Is this true?

    Tennis elbow is when the muscles/tendons in the arm are damaged by repetitive movements. It is hard to tell if the wine is having an affect, but i most likely think it aggravates your tennis elbow from the repetitive movement of lifting your glass up and moving your forearm + shoulder joint.

    Using ice/heat on the affected area will help to dull the pain – you can also take anti-inflammatorys such as ibuprofen

    Tennis elbow is tight tendons causing that so I don’t see how the wine would make any difference. You have to free up your tendons to get rid of your tennis elbow and the pain will be gone right now. As this is difficult to do you need someone trained for that to do the job and that person won’t be found in p.t. rooms or the dr.’s office.
