Common Questions and Answers about Weight training injuries to the elbow


Avatar m tn I'm now at the point where all I can do is swim and walk for the near term--my tennis elbow flared up this week so no weights again. The inability to consistently exercise makes stress management difficult. As far as supplements, I'm just taking Muscle Milk to make sure I'm getting enough calories. I just saw the doc again and pushed her to run some more tests. I'll let you know what I hear.
Avatar m tn In searching the internet it acts like a severe case of tennis elbow, the pain radiates from the elbow joint and follows the bone on the side of my thumbs, all along that bone it is extremely tender and it radiates a terrible burning pain that has never left me in many years. I'm going to go to the Rothmann institute of Sports medicine they deal with alot of joint and sports related injuries, I don't know if an elbow replacement would help but plan to find out, any further thoughts?

Avatar n tn It almost feels like I have to strain to move my eyeball to the left and when I do, I kind of have a dizzy feeling. I know this all sounds really weird but I feel like I have started to fall apart since the new year rang in! I have always been a perfectly healthy individual. I'm a 31 year old female, have 2 young healthy boys and am married. I have no stress in my life whatsoever so I know this is not related to stress.
Avatar n tn she could not have been quicker but the when the needle came out of the arm from the blood draw I was white as a sheet and crying from the pain radiating from the inside of the elbow to the thumb. After reading the posting, i guess the medial nerve was hit. there is about a 5 inch area just above my wrist going toward my elbow. i get spasms like someone is drawing up the nerves on a spool. then, it passes. I sure hope this goes away soon.
Avatar m tn The pain only occurs in the mornings. As soon as I get up and start moving around, and stretching out the back, the pain starts to dissappear, with only a slight tingle left during the day, but not really noticeable. I've tried so many things: - Celebrex (this helped to relieve the pain, however as soon as I stopped using it, the pain instantly came back. I don't want to be taking drugs for the rest of my life). - Chiro, this seemed to only provide temp.
1000775 tn?1256918922 The doc wants now to do a partial fusion of the wrist, with excision of the scaphoid and fusing the other 4 bones on the top of the wrist to provide stability. The excision of the scaphoid is said to be the only solution with partial fution of the wrist since I have alredy developed arthritis on the concerned wrist. My current situation is the following: almost no extention or flexion on the wrist; all other movements intact.
Avatar n tn I embarked on a weight loss program and lost 40 lbs over 1 1/2 year and started to walk and then joined a gym. I did the eliptical, the treadclimber, and weight machines until Oct of last year, I started 3-4 x weekly classes. Then my gym closed and I moved to another one, with better classes that challenged me more and I increased my routine with more sqats and lunges in a body pump class, and that is when my knee (l) acted up.
Avatar n tn The swelling extended down from the elbow joint (though not very swollen around the joint itself) round the outside of my forearm to the base of my wrist. My wife, a student nurse, assures me that the swelling is fluid as pressing it leaves a temporary indentation in the skin. There is no inflammation, no change in sensation, no discolouration or abnormality of any kind- I just have a swollen forearm!

Avatar n tn Starting approxiamately four years ago, I added a heavy weight training portion to the program. My times continued to improve, then started to decline greatly. People who swim with my, shared that my shoulder muscles had shown "shrinkage". In my back, and shoulders, I now occasionally get powerful pulsations from those muscles groups. Sometimes, if I take a day off, I will get sharp pain in the shoulders. Meanwhile, I have a sharp pain in my right elbow, on the inside.

748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn It's hard to say for sure about your symptoms over the internet. But, as far as the ulnar nerve symptoms, first ask yourself are you leaning on your elbows alot perhaps at the computer? This can cause that you describe. It is also possible that your weight training is contributing in some unknown way. Finally, it is also theoretically possible this could be caused by ulnar artery thrombosis and there are various blood tests for diseases that can lead to this.
544292 tn?1268886268 But that's not the most alarming part of Tramadol in my case. In my case the antidepressant that they tacked on to the cocktail is the thing that causes all the rough psychological and mental symptoms. It's a Two Fer One! I've been feeling like I was going crazy for a long time. And in addition to that; the scary suicidal ideation. The suicidal ideation vanished and returns ONLY if I get a flare up of withdrawal symptoms. That happens if I get over stressed.
1211493 tn?1266563966 it all started last march(09) when i was in the middle of an avid weight lifting routine. I was up to this point a 6 day a week weight lifter, 6'6 195 lbs with very low body fat and ran 3-4 miles almost daily. I eat very well, and was at that point on track to play division 1 college basketball at depaul university...until my life fell apart..

Avatar n tn I decided to have surgery to repair the tear. However, since the injury was approximately two months old, the surgeon would have to insert the biceps tendon to the same insertion as the brachialis muscle, since too much time had passed and the biceps tendon had already begun to atrophy.
Avatar n tn i ate a lite dinner and took a much needed pain killer. the pain i'm having trouble with is the elbow to the forearm, it feel really knotted up. swelling has gone down in the fingers a little and i do move my fingers as i was told to.
Avatar f tn although my Dr says my blood pressure is slightly high and I need to loose weight. So about 2 weeks ago my daughter and I started to go to the gym. I don't overdo it....and only walk (fast for me) on the treadmill etc. But at least I'm doing something. Anyway about the same time I realized that I have extreme pain in my left knee (slightly to the left side) when I kneel on it.
Avatar m tn I have a desk job but never suffer from any pain while at the desk or afterwards. The cause may be from weight training that I started 8 months ago, although I never felt any pain in any of the gym sessions or had a sore neck or upper back afterwards. I only noticed the problem when I was flossing my teeth before bed one night and tilted my head back to get a better angle.
Avatar n tn 00pm (29-03-09) The most awaited day for every body, during warm-up, I drive and try to gave a full strainght take-off to dunk when I suddenly slip and rapture my patellar tendon without any knowledge and for the second time I stand up and fail to straight my leg that cause me to hit my elbow to the floor and fructure my radial head. I was undergo to surgery next day and discharge from the hospital on the fourth day.
Avatar n tn I've just recently noticed the elbow thing and am FREAKED OUT! I do believe it's related to hormones but could also be illness and weight loss... But the good news is that I do find that my hands really respond when I moisturize and - a big help - use gloves when I wash dishes. The other thing is I recently lost a bunch of weight too, and that's when I noticed the skin on my elbows. I think at least some of the problem is from the weight loss, which makes some sense.
