Dear friend,
Consult a ortho doctor if swelling presist more than one week, i feel you must try homeopathic medicine Arnica 30, 4 pills 2 hourly for one week,or consult a homeopathic physician i your area and follow his instruction. Arnica will help to remove the pain and any internal injury to the muscles and bones.
thank ypu

hi xray showed bone spur. my sister has extreme constant pain in elbow shoulder pain, arm pain,swollen hand and wrist. no injury to elbow. 5 months now...right elbow very swollen, red, no pain, not hot...been on a strong antibiotic for 6 days no sign of swelling going down. dr wont treat painful {left} elbow with a cortisone shot until swelling goes down in right elbow as he says there is a infection in it.I Don t think there is one there. Should I have a blood test to see if I have a infection? Should I have a ultra sound? Iam very worried as my mom had hemangioendothliom cancer in her hand and had to have it amputated. Does this sound like a bone spur?

Fell on my elbow snowboarding swelling right away, went to urgent care got an xray. The doctor said no broken bones, but he did say he saw a bone chip or bone spur. After the fall there was no bruising but hurt like I had torn my tricep, but everyone is telling me that I would have bruising and barely be able to straighten my arm and will not be able to do any tricep exercises, i can do a tricep exercise on a chair..
