Pain the elbow. On medication for high blood pressure. What is it?
Hi,my husband, aged 53, has had severe pain in his going, so bad he can t move. First in his right elbow , about 6 weeks ago, his right ankle about 2 weeks ago and now has the same pain in his left elbow. The pain is so severe it makes him sick. It lasts about 3 days. Ice does help. What could this be? He does take medication for high blood pressure , but is not over weight.
Hi, It seems that your husband might be having Rheumatoid artheritis. go for RA test for confirmation. Consult physician and get examined and investigated. Meanwhile give him NSAID medicine. Ok and take care.
