No there is no swelling now, this has completely gone.
No there is no weakness, just pain, and this pain stops me doing the action I attempt. Not extreme pain maybe 4/10.
But if I try a fast action like a throw then the pain is more sharp and more like 8/10.
So if it is a tendon or ligament injury, is there a risk that I might damage it further? Can a tendon or ligament get bruised? I am worried that if a tendon or ligament is torn or broken this will take a lot longer or may need surgery - or am I worrying too much???
Sorry I dont know enough about how the elbow works to know how bad this is. And I am in Thailand - so if it is bad I will need to fly back!
Is it better to ice it or to put heat on it? And should I do this as much as possible or just for an hour a day or what?
I have never had a injury like this before! Sorry for all the questions.
