Elbow injury due to fall, swelling. X-ray does not show fracture. Did I fracture bone around elbow?
I fell on my elbow onto tile from a little higher than a squatting position I slipped on a cover. It s been a week and I don t have any pain reflief and the swelling is still the same. I went to the er the next day and they took xrays of my elbow and i didn t break it. Could I have fractured a bone around my elbow that the xray didnt see?
I do not think that if x ray is normal then you should be worried. I would suggest you to apply Diclofenac ointment , hot water fomentation and compression bandage. Avoid any excessive movement of your elbow. Take brufen tablet for pain relief.
