Hello !

    Three months ago I hit my elbow right on the corner of a desk. I currently have weak pain on elbow and at the ring finger and pinky.

1)  How Long Will it hurt ? What can I do to speed up the healing process ?

2) Can I go to the gym ?  I want to be a police officer , and I need stronger muscle.

    Hi Adrian, three months on and you're still having problems with this, I'd be inclined to  see a doctor/ideally a sports injury physio. I should take my own advice! I've had pain in both elbows for about 10 years. One day I propped myself up in bed on my elbow and went through the roof with the pain! Stupid of me not to at least attempt to get a medical opinion about this symptom.

    The family doctor told me that the pain can last for a year. When doing exercises at the gym does not hurt anything. But when total relax in bed, watching television, or now when I write elbow hurts weak, it's very  annoying !

    It hurts weak for one month !!

    I suffer from tennis elbow and I was referred to a physiotherapist, who showed me how to deal with it and gave me a 'clasp' to wear when I am driving, which seems to exacerbate it [the tennis elbow]

    The clasp helps.

    I'll post a picture, so that you can see what I am talking about

      I have deleted the post with the link below as it was to a selling site. For general info like this - advising users to Google a term rather than posting a specific link is better as it will not go for moderation. So in this case "do a Google search on EPI Clasp Tennis Elbow Band" and under the images tab are plenty of pictures.

      Alternatively you can upload an image using the icon at the top right of the reply boxes but you would need to save the image to your PC first.

      Regards,

      Alan

      As soon as I posted it, I realised it was selling and all I was looking for, was a picture!

      Slightly off topic, Alan, would it be possible to let us have the facility to edit our posts for a little while after we have posted them?  

      Thank you!
