I'm going to be making an appointment to see the doctor this week concerning this, but OOI I thought I would post here and see if anyone had prior experience, then compare my crowdsource diagnosis with the medical one!

 

 

 

The injury in this case was caused when handling livestock but I am sure a similar injury would be possible through sports and so on.

 

 

 

Outwardly there are no signs of injury - no swelling, redness etc.

 

When I hold my arm out straight in front (or indeed at any angle for that matter) and rotate my hand anti-clockwise, there is a sharp pain on the inside of the elbow/bottom of upper arm muscle and down my forearm. If I attempt to force the hand beyond the point of pain, the pain gets much sharper and more significant.

 

At rest there is a bit of a dull ache to the general elbow area.

 

 

 

Any ideas?

My non-medical guess would be tennis elbow.

And my guess for what the doctor will do - prescribe you a NSAID. Something like Naproxen.

Edit

NSAIDS are not good if you have heart problems.

I wouldn't go to a doctor. Go see a Physiotherapist.

Sounds like tennis elbow, which I've had. But then I also had a piece of bone break off and jam in the joint.
But unlike the tennis elbow, there was a distinctive crack and instant pain (middle of golf swing of all things, hadn't even hit the ball).
Osteo actually diagnosed it when he noticed I couldn't straighten it.

I would go to a doctor so they can rule out a break or something. Also, for any accident, go to a doctor promptly and make sure you claim ACC. I've had an issue with ACC, which I won't go into, but going to see a doctor promptly would've reduced problems.

Let's be different - Golfer's elbow! Had both, but don't play either. Golfers elbow has pain situated on the inside of the elbow, whereas tennis elbow the pain is on the outside of the elbow, apparently.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Not sure about the internet, but the doctor will first want to know which arm, and whether you're right or left handed.

What have details and facts got to do with anything? This is teh interwebs!

He's pregnant. Has to be. Unless it's his left elbow, in which case it simply must be mad cow's disease.

Golf elbow (if it's on the inside), or google says familial apatite crystal deposition disease.

 

I've had golf elbow.  Took about 2 months to fully go away.  Physio was a complete waste of time, although she was cute, so on reflection...

Yes that is certainly good advice. The other way to reduce ACC problems (at least for the self employed) is to do Cover Plus Extra. No arguing over what they ought to pay you etc then.

More than a grain of truth there - although perhaps not for this.
