Tennis elbow occurs due to inflammation of the elbow. Pain will be present on the outerside of the elbow. It occurs mainly due to repeated motions of the elbow. You can take the pain killers if you have pain. You can ask your doctor to give corticosteroid injection at the elbow for the pain relief. You can also try the physiotherapy.

chill buddy even i am huge fan of sachin,...nothing to worry ...and i am a physiotherapist...tennis elbow means swelling of the elbow...at the origin of a muscle.. the name of the muscle is extensor carpi radialis brevis...as the name suggests it is usefull for extension of the wrist...it is 100 percent treatable...taking rest is the best treatment along with physiotherapy and mild exerscise...pain killers will help in the case of severe pain...

Going to therapy golfers or tennis elbow (I don t play either one) and getting relief from pain and swelling. Now I have a knot on the inside of the elbow that feels like it is fluid. What is this? They have no clue what to do. No x-ray or MRI has been done. Should I ask for one? Have been in pain and unable to use arm for over 4 months. Please help me.

I am 52, female. Had this urge to pee and defecate 3 weeks ago. Had to literally sit on the toilet for 5 hours. Wanted to go see a doctor. Suddenly it seemed to disappear. 2 days ago saw my family doctor and did a urine test. Negative. Today upon waking up the same symptoms. Taking Celebrex for 3 days already for rotator cuff pain, tennis elbow & carpal tunnel. The pain is still there. No help. So these 2 things make me so miserable.

Is there any proof that it is unhealthy for an athlete who has a low pulse rate because of aerobic exercise but also has blood pressure of appr. 140/96? I think I'm in excellent health because of my life style but have these symptoms and I've seen that there are many other athletes with the same symptoms. Maybe this is normal for athletes and taking blood pressure medicine for them is unnecessary and even harmful. Could it be that the higher blood pressure in athletes is the body's healthy reaction to an athlete's muscles being in need of more blood?
