injuryrehabadvice.com THIS HURTS! What hurts… Outer elbow joint. How you hurt it…: I’ve flyfished for 22+ years and never had a problem. However, last August (2009) I was practicing a new casting stroke for 1 week straight every day for about an hour. When you hurt it…: August. I have stopped the offending activity and just when I think the pain is gone, it comes back after stressing the elbow joint. Your pain level (1 is low, 10 is high pain): Now after almost 10 months, the pain is gone so long as I don’t use my arm. As soon as I try to do something like using a screwdriver or anything that requires tortion of the forearm brings back the pain (delayed onset) to about a level 3. Other activities that bring back the pain are flyfishing. Your age and overall health…: 52 and relatively good health although I do have an inguinial hernia or so I think that surgery did not fix. It’s either a hernia or a ruptured muscle since 6 six years ago and won’t heal. Any other information you feel is relevant…: My body has never healed quickly. I have old pains that have never gone away completely if I stress the particular joint/muscle (ie shoulder) I’ve seen an orthopedic surgeon who referred me to a PT but felt my elbow pain was getting worse so I stopped seeing her. She diagnosed me with ulnar nerve entrappment but I haven’t had the numb fingers any more Please help!
