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
